In His Place

In His Place


Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson

Here's a good premise that finds itself all dressed up with nowhere to go. What would happen if you returned to your home only to discover a burglar in your bedroom? Instead of rushing in, you reach a stand off which leads to debate. The idea is good but, once established, writer/director Alper Cagatay's script runs out of steam.

This short lasts only eight minutes, so why does it take so long? There is nothing much wrong with Michael Edwood's and Ashley David's performances - though they are a bit shouty - but the story just doesn't help them out. Perhaps someone broke in and stole the rest of the plot.
