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>

Happy New Year indeed
3 September 2003 | by (L A.) – See all my reviews

This little waking-up-the-day-after short is, once again, a testimony to how audaciously confident Ozon is in his film-making abilities. As with most of his shorts, this one is subversive - it seems very disjointed and unfinished, but it's actually very cleverly constructed, with a beginning, middle and an end.
