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>

FANTASTIC! You MUST see this short film.
9 November 2004 | by MangetoutSee all my reviews

I happened to catch this short on broadcast TV some time ago and it has stuck in my mind ever since.

While the owners are out walking their dog, six odd-looking Swedes break into their apartment and pretty much trash the place, but with style and rhythm.

Quirky, but compelling and wholly entertaining. I Can't think of a single way in which it could be improved.

Available on DVD as part of a compilation called SHORT6 (I managed to order a copy from Amazon.co.jp and it arrived this morning - YAY!).

Get hold of a copy now; you'll watch it over and over.
