A Modern Day Fairy Tale in NYC
After a night of tequila and good music, a guy has one night of passion with a dream woman. He wakes the next morning to find her gone, but she left her shoe. It's a very sexy, expensive shoe-- which he believes is owned by a very sexy, exciting woman-- if only he could remember who she was. He goes on a journey through the streets of Manhattan to find her to unexpected results.
This little short was beautifully shot, wonderfully acted and crafted. When the guy went on his search the director used a collage of beautiful women with an infectious score. This was my favorite part, because it portrayed Black women in such a beautiful light, which I rarely see in film. I loved the message that we're all looking for our "Cinderella"-- we do it all the time. In every face, we are looking-- could that be him? Could that be her? Every woman was stunning, but he still had that burning question-- is she the one? He showed the shoe to several women and they thought he was nuts. Good laughs. I've never seen a film with African American leads that had such innocence and charm. Overall, the story-telling was truly unique and the twist on the end... perhaps I could see it coming, but I enjoyed the ride so much, I didn't care. I LOVED THIS FILM.
