A gem...
30 March 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

A small gem from first time director Leib Cohen. John Pankow is a louse of a husband trying to unload wife Rebecca Pidgeon. He goes to his Rabbi (the great Eli Wallach) for help. Wallach obliges (or does he?)

A short film with the the depth of a feature. First rate acting and extremely clever dialogue establish characters in an instant. The production values are first-rate never revealing the film's shoe-string budget. A very entertaining twenty minutes.
