Intriguing short film with a couple of star turns
25 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A short, black and white drama about a couple of safecrackers assigned their toughest job yet: to crack a safe in a pitch black room. By far the best thing about this production are the two actors present, Liam Cunningham and Michael Fassbender. The two Irish guys have starred together in the past (CENTURION, HUNGER) and they share a natural rapport which comes across nicely, especially in their pub scenes.

Inevitably there's a twist ending, one which I wasn't too keen on to tell you the truth, but otherwise this short film acquits itself well. You wonder how they'll successfully stage a set-piece in total darkness but of course it's all achieved via sound. Maybe not a thing of greatness, but certainly worth a watch for fans of the actors involved.
