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.

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.
