Short film about a thief

A thief breaks into a house and starts to rob it. A woman comes home and surprises the thief and drops her groceries. She runs away and gets hit by a car but the thief doesn’t know it. Somehow she locks the thief in the house before she runs away. He tries to get out but he can’t. After a while he resigns himself to staying in the house and getting caught. He even be-friends the dog and cooks dinner. After a while a police man comes and thinks the thief is the woman’s husband. The thief then takes the dog and leaves. I think I saw it on HBO whenever I was little, in the mid 90s. It was in color. Please help!

      1. This film was actually nominated for an Oscar at the 1999 Academy Awards! I’m also pretty sure that HBO aired it around that time. I wish I could have found a copy for you to watch!
        I hope you will let us know if we can mark it ‘solved’!
