Storyline

On a weekday morning like any other, a man and woman stake out a house waiting for the owner to leave. As soon as he does, the woman jumps out the car and breaks into the house. She makes her way to the bedroom, filling a large bag as she goes. But then, the owner returns, catching her in the act. She freezes. The owner steps forward, his hand raised... And strokes her face. She looks up at him and they almost kiss. The guy from the car stands in the doorway. The woman pulls away from the owner and takes off her wedding ring. She places it in the owner's hand and leaves with her new man. But is she sure that she made the right choice? Written by Anonymous

A gem
16 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I originally caught this at the LA Shorts Film Fest last year, and for whatever reason it's stuck with me ever since.

Breathlessly edited, heart-pounding score, eye-melting black and white photography, and a very memorable twist ending that turns the heist genre on its head.

Definitely a standout from that year.

Has anyone else seen this?

Looking forward to whatever else Mr. Berry has in store for us... I also recommend "See You Later," which is stylistically a changeup but shows just as much promise.
