Movie Short Review: ‘Worth’

Greetings again from the darkness. Two women enter their respective stalls in a public restroom. Through the divider, one asks the other, “Do you have a tampon?” We then flashback to each woman at home … each experiencing their own particular pain in regards to their menstrual cycle.

Alejandra Jenni plays one of the women, and she also directs this 12 minute short from Germany, reminding us that there is no such thing as ‘regular’. Amelie Barth plays the other woman, and Jonas Rhonheimer appears as Alejandra’s significant other – a stand-in for all men who can never understand. Kudos to Ms. Jenni for pushing the dialogue along in an effective way.
