Storyline

A gang in a Volvo have staked out a flat; when its occupants leave to walk their dog, the six break into the place. One keeps his eyes on a stopwatch: they have only ten minutes before the couple returns. Instead of stealing things, the gang goes from room to room making fascinating percussive music with found objects: first in the kitchen, then the bedroom, the bathroom, and the salon. Cabinet doors, pot lids, light switches, a pill dispenser, a lamp, books, and a vacuum cleaner hose all add to the suite in four movements. The drummers keep the first three rooms tidy, but what will the flat's occupants make of the hurricane that hits the living room? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hysterical
9 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This film appeared in a selection of short films on the Sundance Channel (U.S. independent film channel). I had videotaped the program to watch later, and I was blown away when I saw this. The whole thing runs about 10 minutes and I watched it over and over and over. It's just so clever. And the music rocks! If you appreciate comedy, if you a appreciate well-made films, if you are a drummer: you'll love this short.
