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

...Rubbish. See "GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) to watch how it needs to be done.
6 January 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

"One Perfect Day" is a musically-oriented drama surrounding the tale of a classical composer who discovers his sister died after taking some drugs in a party. He then decides to pursue the rave scene, and finds himself completely immersing in a new and digital age of music.

...Sounds tight, huh? I thought so myself. This movie does manage to pull some nifty tricks on the unsolicited viewer - but c'mon!! * Crickets do NOT sound anything like a choir when you sample them and pitch them down!! The choir thing is the intro for Orbital's track under the same name as the movie title.

* Some of the dramatic/hallucinogenic elements are just poorly acted and filmed. The raves are shot in a most rough manner that does not capture the energies of a real party (unlike it's fellow mates "Groove" and "GMT").

If you really want to see a Dramatic movie that's also related to and includes a lot of action from the electronica scene, try "GMT" which is a tight movie about an electronic band and their break-ups and hold-ups.
