Storyline

For all those times you were at an art exhibit wondering just how hard it would be to steal that "priceless ugly thing". Or how easy... Introducing Stella, Alex and John: three honors students with a taste for anti-establishment pranks and the skill level to execute them seamlessley. Crammed with all that accessible knowledge and the competitive spirit of youth, they decide to tamper with the eccentric egos of the art world. With the help of a friend skilled in replication, they decide to relieve a museum of a prized scultpure. At first, the plan is to replace the statue with an exact replica but Stella can't resist throwing in an unexpected variation. Of course it would've helped if she'd told Alex and John about it. Written by Dominika Wolski

Just a light snack, not a rich dessert
30 March 2004 | by IndievanSee all my reviews

The acting of the main characters, Dan, Stella, John and Alex is stiffly amateurish. Conversations are stilted and without any sort of natural flow. The exhibitionistic behaviour of the Stella character is unnerving and lends nothing to the storyline which is, mischievous college students trying to come up with their next big prank. Theft is mentioned, theft is planned but not a real theft, just a make-believe theft. There's more but I can't give away the ending. I've heard rumours of a full-length feature being made, I don't see how they can do it with these actors in the lead, they could barely keep my interest for the 20 some minutes.

Some neat lighting and camera work, would be of interest to film students interested in the technical side of filmmaking but not much else of value in this almost too long short. I give it a 7 out of 10 for technical and a 2 out of 10 for artistic.
