It was a brief gem that combined simple but elegant camerawork with a hilariously offbeat premise! "Nicholas Seeley, JO magazine, May '05"

Almost 3 years ago, in June 2003 ,I had that amazing experience in practicing my acting talents :-) "Give me one reason not to…" a short movie, was the outcome of Amr Toukhy, the terrific director and friend.
Amr and myself got very excited when we wrote that funny script, the next day was in Abu-Lughod Studios where the voice-over got recorded. The main shooting was in the 3rd day at my wonderful friend's place, Ahmad Saqfalhait, who wanted to take the leading role of the movie but couldn’t :-). It was a quit tiring day for all of us :-). Honestly the starring role was for Amr and his creative eye. "Reason" was selected and nominated as follows:
I would like to thank Amman Filmmakers Cooperative and Royal Film Commission for their support all the time.
