"Fiasco" is cross-cultural comedy about an Arab girl, Noura, who is secretly married to her gay, American best friend Daniel in order to obtain a green card to prolong her stay in America and become a famous artist. The green card interview is in two days and everything seems to be going as planned, when all of a sudden, Noura's strongly conservative father Fareez shows up unannounced. Her father's surprise visit propels Noura's double life towards disaster. Written by N. Hamzeh

Well done.
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short film, which means action-action-action. And the film delivers it very well. Everything happens inside the home of the film's main character. Noura is faced with a problem, she's looking for a solution, but there's no much time... She faces the problem head-on, and she follows through with it. Does she solve the problem? Well, it's not clear, but that's the point. It'a fiasco, and a turbulent outcome of her worst fears. She's brave to admit who she really is, and what she wants to do, but this admission brings her to another (ultimate) obstacle: INS. Enough for a short film, and clearly a good model for a feature film. "Fiasco" delivers an entertaining punch.
