Storyline

Morning has broken on January 1, 2000. A man rises from his bed, leaving a woman asleep. He walks through an apartment littered with the detritus of last night's party. Twin men are asleep in a single sleeping bag on the floor. He sees a couple making love in an apartment across the way. The woman rises, sees him staring out the window, and runs a bath. As she soaks and the twins sleep, he makes a discovery beneath a wastebasket. Quiet morning-after ruminations continue. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Art as mute cry
6 May 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

First morning of 2000. A naked man , a woman in sleep, a couple who makes sex, twin brothers in a nook, ants and the woman in bathroom. 8 minutes and brief dialog.

"X2000" is a brilliant self-definition of Ozon's art. The slices of silence, the gestures, the sound of words,the light and discoveries are parts of a same game with the public, a provocation but, in many occasions, a subversive existential question.

At first sight, this film is a Rene Magritte 's works. Or piece of a film about crisis or disputes, sins and marriage.

In fact, it is one Francois Ozon sample. Ironic, subtle and sarcastic, with images from surrealism and trap for sensitivity of a special audience, with traces of expressionism and kitsch, with an dark humor and exploration of world, people, reactions and silences as entomologist.

"X2000" is key for "Piscine", "Sitcom" or "8 femmes". Definition of existence in terms of skeptical vision and childish curiosity for explore the bones of illusions.

Twoo characters are presents in this film: the search and the ants. The desire to discover the sense of things/life/gesture and the sense in pure form. And then- the protective shadow of anxiety.

So, a magnificent short- film about nothing. Or a good occasion for self introspection.

The art as mute cry.
