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

Capers Anyone?
1 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Gifted director Nick Bicanic and his DP, Todd Williams, combine to present a heist film that is both fast-paced and visually- compelling; and that's 'compelling' in the old-fashioned way, with creative camera angles, lighting schemes and story movement, rather than 'CGI this' and 'blue screen that' - (this is the way movies were meant to be made).

A quirky script (inspired by star Dominika Wolski, herself 'visually- compelling') reminiscent of other intriguing caper flicks such as 'Silent Partner' (another Canadian classic) and 'The Sting', invites the viewer to ride along with Stella, Alex and John as they make the transition from honor student roomies to big-time art thieves.

This cool little tale from Vancouver (with a kicking soundtrack) does not disappoint.
