Ethiopian actors performance on romantic movies
As many will agree, the cinema industry in Ethiopia is still in its infant stage. In recent times, the country is seeing a good number of new generations of filmmakers, in their majority amateurs, who are making films that are enjoying a good run in various cinema houses. On a not brighter note, however, the contemporary films "are not up to the standard," many in the industry admit. There just is much to be desired as far as the development of films is concerned, they say.
