review by
Mike Haberfelner

Stephen (Jack Kesy) has long been a disciple of self help guru Michael (Usman Ally), and it's been in one of his seminars he met his future wife Roni (Inbar Lavi) - however, whatever Michael might have done for him, he hasn't made Stephen a better stock trader. And when Stephen has pretty much all of his money wasted on worthless stocks, Michael just cuts off contact and support as in essence Stephen's just a client run out of money. But that doesn't stop Stephen from trying to implement Michael's techniques of manifestation and the like - to rather astounding results, as one day while trading stocks from his home, a being that's the splitting image of his wife Roni (and is thus also played by Inbar Lavi) shows up and gives him stock advice - that's invariably spot on. Problem is, Stephen has hardly any funds, so fantasy Roni persuades Stephen to empty the student loan account of real Roni - much to the real Roni's dismay. She's somehow calmed down of course when she learns the next day that Stephen has made a tidy profit, but is somewhat miffed when she learns that prior to him raiding her account he has lost all his own money without telling her. And when she learns about his method that involves a fantasy her, she's so disgusted that she moves out of their home. Thing is, he has become a total success at the market, and his results ultimately win her back - even if Stephen has to promise to give up fantasy Roni. Unfortunately with her gone so are his good fortunes, and his desperation summons her back, Thing is, she's more than just a visualisation of his, and eventually driven by jealousy of the real Roni starts ruining Stephen's life ...


The concept "manifestation", as often used by self help gurus, driven to the extreme is the base for this very unusual thriller, a film that might tell a pretty far-fetched story, but in a very convincing, even suspenseful way. And while the concept might suggest horror, the film as such pretty much avoids spectacle, concentrating on mindgames instead, and it's carried rather beautifully by a very solid cast and a directorial effort giving the actors the necessary space to breathe life into their characters. And all of this results in a pretty cool genre movie.
