Storyline

Tommy Matisse is a gifted musician studying at London's Royal Academy of Music, where he is striving to write a brilliant new operatic song called "One Perfect Day" in conjunction with his girlfriend Alysse back in Australia. When Tommy's sister Emma dies of a drug overdose after a night of clubbing with Alysse, he returns to Melbourne and breaks up with Alysse when she admits her part in Emma's death. As Alysse seeks solace in drugs and in the arms of a manipulative nightclub owner, Tommy undertakes an odyssey of self-discovery and tragedy in Melbourne's dance music scene. Fate brings them together again when Tommy reworks their opera by infusing classical music with electronic beats, but further tragedy is just around the corner... Written by Alexander Lum

A beautifully crafted film and a hell of a trip
11 February 2004 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie was very well directed and edited. It's been 2 years in post production aparrently, but the effort was well worth it. There's quite a lot of visual effects, and the accompanying sound is awesome.

Basically, the film is about a young man's journey to reach an audience with his music. The man (Tommy) has a talent for hearing music where others hear only noise, or none at all. I was impressed with how this was conveyed.

Tommy struggles to find not only a mechanism for getting heard, but a series of personal dramas threaten to consume him as well.

The movie was a fantastic cocophany of sight and sound. While the plot was a little tedious for me, I'm sure it won't affect most peoples opinion of the movie. I'd recommend seeing it.
