Brilliant Film - Easily Misunderstood By The Predjudiced
3 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ozone is a truly excellent short film. It defies definite categorisation as it is a blend of Gilliam-esquire surreality, social comment and science fiction. Thus I can understand the negative comments made by the other reviewers although I think they have missed the point entirely and failed to grasp the concept of this short movie. I was particularly amazed by the reviewer here who refers to what he calls unpleasant violin music at the start of the film.. The music is Saint Saens' Danse Macabre - A Cello-led piece of music and rather a beautiful one, too. It suggests motion and suits well the opening action of the movie.

I saw Ozone recently and, having recorded it from the TV, I have watched it about five times now. This is a short film which is packed with directorial detail and tells the story of a future executive who is called to a strange "reward" meeting by his company.

The action and character reactions are certainly alien and stilted but the performances are all superb with the main characters saying so much through their facial expressions.

I very much liked the little reference to "Brazil" - the classic Terry Gilliam movie which is a surreal tour-De-force. Look out for the little chocolate bars on the fat ladies' trolley - they have the "Brazil" logo from the movie.

This film is not for everyone. To enjoy it you must suspend judgement and let it wash over you. There is more in this sub-20 minute movie than there is in many full-length features. This is a brilliant portrayal of a future world which is different in most respects from our own. My sincere compliments to the directorial team Honey.. I hope we can expect a full-length feature of this quality soon and that these talented directors will be encouraged by the fact that there are a few of us out here who grasp what they are doing :-) Chris Johnys 03/11/2006.
