This is another example of wonderful untapped talent that exists in this world.  Ryan Jafri is a first time director who has produced an elegant short film that definitely should be the price of his admission to the professional realm of film makers in Hollywood. 


The story is simple enough and has been told, in various forms, many times.  An intensely jealous woman, played by Mollie Weeks, discovers that her lover is cheating on her with another woman and is so enraged (remember the old adage of hell hath no fury like a woman scorned or actually spurned this case?) that she decides to seek the ultimate revenge.

However, most people are not really wicked and soon regret their evil deeds. Mollie soon regrets her actions and tries to make amends by taking the final cure.

The acting was very natural and completely professional.  Mollie Weeks is a very talented actress and she probably has one of the most delectable profiles that we have ever seen.  Douglas Davis as the potential hit man for hire is, at once, handsome and menacing.  The director made a wonderful choice in his casting for this movie. 

Cinematography by Eric Giovon and Marie Pezi is crisp and professional.  And, we liked the transitions between black and white and color which was handled almost transparently.  Dan Caravetta’s musical creation was hauntingly dynamic. 

We give this short movie starstarstar1/2 in the category.  If you get a chance see it, you will not regret it.  You may want to try the producer’s web site at www.jafripictures.com to acquire the DVD for viewing.
