Great story teller just for short period time... 
When I read the info about this one, I thought this is a Netflix feature film! How is this going to be done on a budget in a few minutes? Well, watching the film, I was surprised that the filmaker pulled it off! A lot of hard work went into this short film, setting up the different scenes, and making the story believable, and the unexpected ending was an added bonus. Well done!  
Concept is good. Good cinematography. Lead actor is excellent.  
This is a fun watch! Well done for a short film. Well told and cut together. No wasted time and nothing boring about it. Good job! 
I really took a deep interest to the entire story plot, the husband (I could see comits infidelity within his matrimonial bond against his wife, and therefore he is the -antagonist) the wife on the other hand can be viewed as the hero and The clever protagonist in the fact that she devises a plan to criminally fraud her once sneaky husband and in the end the wife and the mistress become lovers. 
An example that a short story can tell and show few nice things. Idea, way of the story telling, cuts, more scenes, good acting and funny finale! Good job. 
Great job! Very nice twist! Well done!  
Dain Turner – Thanks!) Sweet and awesome story, meaning a lot a best example of #IsIamHonest – Is I am Honest  
Great short!
