Storyline

Shawn Holloway has a miserable life since she was eleven, when her father left her mother and she stayed alone with her problematic mother. Presently she is graduated, works in a bank and is the mistress of her married colleague Matthew Richmond. When she finds that Matthew's wife is pregnant, she decides to commit suicide. She goes to the roof of the building, drinks some vodka, trying to get enough courage to jump to the floor. The neighbors see the scene and call the police to save Shawn. Meanwhile, the bank where she works is being robbed by Charlie Anders and two friends of him. When the cops arrive to save Shawn, the heist is in progress and the police shoot one robber, the driver escapes and Charlie runs to the top of the building. There, he does not allow Shawn to jump off and saves her. They make an agreement: she would help him to escape, and he would give US$ 50,000.00 to her and kill her later with a shot in the head.

Trivia

A large number of filter effects, shutter effects, and jump cuts are used to make long dialogue scenes (particularly between the two cop and between the two lovers) more visually interesting. The audio itself on both is done as a single long take. See more »

well directed piece
13 December 2002 | by (sydney australia) – See all my reviews

This was clearly a work that was low budget and yes perhaps a little rushed

  • but I get a bit annoyed at reviewers here who whinge on about script


development for a film that clearly had a hard time getting any kind of funding at all. Script development is hard to get in even the biggest budgeted films just look at Lord of the Rings if you want to see underdeveloped characters but strangely not to many people shooting that down.

That said this is a nice, gentle film about a bank robbery that is not trying to be Reservoir Dogs or Lock Stock, and I don't think it is so much underdeveloped as less violent. The writer and director have stuck to their own vision and have produced something that they should be proud of for a first feature.

The performances are good and the script and directorial choices are clever and interesting without trying to scream at the audience "Look at me I'm an Auteur"

Certainly worth a look and a good video movie for females who are tired of seeing the male dominated violent heist films.
