Storyline

Steven, a meek accountant-in-training, is living contentedly with his wife Clara and working for her brothers, managing the books at their junkyard. All of this changes when the belly dancer they hire for Steve's birthday turns out to be Anke, one of his classmates. Suddenly smitten, Steven begins to pursue Anke, who falls for him when he protects her from a overly-lecherous customer. News travels fast in a close-knit neighborhood, however, and soon Clara and her brothers find out about the illicit relationship. Pushed to the edge, Steven will have to decide between his marriage with Clara and his love for Anke. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

10 January 2010 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Steven (Joe Perce) works for his sister's brothers at a junkyard as a bookkeeper and seems to be disappointed in his life. He has a nice wife, a kid and is getting ready to graduate as a CPA. But what he really wants is a partnership and, when he doesn't get it, he decides to sleep with the belly-dancer his wife hired for his birthday party. Yeah, he sleeps with her, but not before they both accidentally kill an aggressive client of hers. Oh, the drama. Sporting a fantastic exploitation title and a DVD cover promising sleaze, this NYC lensed flick ends up being a huge disappointment. I was hoping for a Bronson-style vigilante revenge flick and instead got a Lifetime movie about infidelity for New Yawkers. I expected something sleazy, especially coming from Meir Zarchi, the guy who made I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. Damn. Nothing will prepare you for the riveting scene where the arguing couple both arrive at the bank to close their joint account down AT THE SAME TIME!!! Ugh.
