Who Watches Your House While You're Away?
23 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Peter Mullen creates another great short film, with my mother Vicki Masson, who is also famous for her role as Betty in Rob Roy (1995)

When a couple is asked by their neighbours to look after their flat while they're on holiday, things start to get out of hand. A simple task of feeding the cat quickly turns into wearing of clothes and sleeping in a fancy bed. As well as stealing a piece of African Sculpture. The end of the short shows the wife coming out of the neighbour's house, cotton stuck to her hair from the bed, giggling that she has found their home movies (some of them very private) but then the door locks and the two are stranded outside-and then the Neighbours arrive back.

A perfect example of why you should never let curiosity, greed or envy overcome you, as well as teaching a lesson to holiday- goers that you should be extremely careful who you lend your keys to for two weeks.
