One of the weirdest short movies I have ever seen
22 February 2013 | by WakenPayneSee all my reviews

This movie is basically the same thing over and over. A man and a woman celebrate Christmas, The man's boss walks in and says he's been stealing money. The man kills his boss only to find his boss is not dead and the boss kills him. Then the woman dies of a heart attack so they both could claim the insurance. Only to find out the woman is not dead and worked for the boss.

That was basically the first few minutes but it really is the same thing. One kills the other, finds out they've been faking the death, kills another, faked their death as well. It can be amusing to watch at times because you know what's coming next, nobody dies. However it does get very tiresome. If you are unhappy with 12 or 13 twists in 12 minutes then this one will not be for you. I will watch other Belgian movies - hopefully the ones I choose to watch will be better than this.
