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

not the greatest movie ever made, but well worth 2 hours
16 October 2006 | by (Canada, formerly of Melbourne) – See all my reviews

I saw this when I lived in Melnourne from 2002-3.

We say it on opening might in Melbourne and while it is not "The Castle" or "The Dish", it's still not a bad movie, especially if you like the music and the whole rave music vibe. What it also does is prove the high quality of Aussie film-making for such a relatively small population.

In fact, if they had made it a 1 hour movie with a bit of plot and all the music scenes, that would have been good enough for me to still pay to see it on the big screen. I bought the sound track and unfortunately they took some liberties on what was in the movie and what is in the soundtrack.

That's really too bad as lots of the movie scenes are not on the soundtrack but in the movie and some of them are very good. I was hoping for a better sound track compared to the movie, but hey, it might be a good rental if you're into the music...
