a woman decides to get rid of the man we never see
another brilliant film from master of Irony and Originality. the woman (acted brilliantly by Jaleh Arikan) is separating from her boyfriend (whom we never see). everyone around her has a story to tell her why she should certainly break up with the guy (who has apparently cheated on her). the sister, Mother (again we never see and only hear on the phone), the boyfriend,s best friend who now wants to have an affair with her just cause the boyfriend is now gone ( the role is wonderfully executed by Shokof himself), and finally she and , only ,she will decide in all her loneliness to do what she needs to do. there are moments in this hilarious short film that one would wish it would be a long film,but again, Shokof tries to escape the rules of telling it as has been for years and makes this short film turn into a GEM. the film is most poetic and always beautifully photographed, with interesting ,and effective camera perspectives to help construction of the dizziness legitimate in telling such a story. Shokof is a master Cinematographer as we can see it over and over again how he transfers his Artistic dimensions and ideas enriching all his movies visuals. the film is shot with a simple home-camera,but so masterfully framed and again acted by Jaleh Arikan that on times you do feel you are watching an Oscar worthy performance, in an Oscar ripe short film. i loved this short film and give it again a 10 for being a true Shokof film at its best.
