'I Will Avenge You Iago!', a debut feature from director Zhenya Kiperman, is at once an entertaining, intelligent, heartfelt, and highly original study of how art can change peoples' lives. Simultaneously it is an interconnected drama and a quirky comedy, with some very notable acting, editing, and cinematography to boot.

The film is centered around a disillusioned and slightly psychotic young man who takes Shakespeare just a little too seriously when he attempts to murder the actor playing the villain Iago in Othello after the show. Meanwhile, the actor's wife returns to her home to find a mysterious woman in her apartment as the play director rehearses his newest work.

The humor is subtle and well-delivered while the overall message is quiet and meditative, but never failing to surprise. For those seeking good character-driven humor and a very original look at the art of theater and what it really means to 'act,' you will not be disappointed.
