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

An unexpected turn of events
22 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a great little film with a twist that I didn't see coming. The way it was set up was really clever: you think it's a robbery but it turns out to be something completely different and unexpected.

The acting is really good, as is the photography - it looks really pretty. I thought Robin Hines - who plays the lead - was excellent. Her performance was very real and I could instantly identify with her feelings. Who hasn't felt that conflict of emotion when ending a relationship? The look on her face in the very last scene says it all.

This is a really, really strong film and I can't wait to see what the filmmakers do next.
