Durdy Game

In "Durdy Game" a woman states that "what goes around comes around on you or your friends." This couldn't be closer to the truth than in director Samad Davis' fine pic about a scheming woman who uses her sexuality to play men for suckers. It is the ultimate story of reaping what one sows.

Janisha Faith is excellent as the gold-digging Sha, and Ahmed Thomas’ story pays off handsomely. Film could pay dividends for a careful distrib. Three young woman all have men problems — Coa Coa (Karima Holloway), married to a man who’s always away on tour; Meeka (Tawny Dahl), who desperately wants a loving boyfriend but keeps getting hurt; and the materialistic Sha. When Meeka finally meets the man of her dreams, she discovers he has another woman. Losing faith in love, she joins Sha in a scheme to set up unsuspecting men, and then rob them blind. When Coa Coa, encouraged by Sha, cheats on her husband with an old flame, she sets into motion a series of events which more than repay the woman for their cynicism.
