A woman in a slip is at her dressing table getting ready for a night out as her husband paces nervously. He's thinking back 30 years when, as a young man, he paid a visit to a pawnshop, a Nixon poster on the wall, a prostitute plying her trade outside. As he works up the courage to tell her whatever is eating at him, the flashbacks show a sleazy salesman pitching a necklace with a diamond-studded pendant. Back in the bedroom, he screws his courage to the sticking point and tells her the truth, as a fly buzzes annoyingly in the background. Are karmic forces at work? Will the sole of a shoe meet the soul of a heel? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

What a smash!!! (LOL!)
9 December 2004 | by (Passaic, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Nice little film! Took me a moment to understand what the buzzing sound was, until I thought to myself, "I like these fly-on-the-wall shots... Oh, I get it!!!!"

Great job by all the actors! Nice expression of internal conflict especially by Geoffrey Gould!

Amazing that the director was able to cast Daryl Hannah, however I couldn't quite see how her part fit in with the rest of the story. It seemed extraneous, as if she was available for the film, so she was fit in however possible.

Overall, a very enjoyable film.
