Storyline

A hooded youth carrying a goldfish in a plastic bag walks aimlessly through an underground NYC subway stop that has the look of a Kar Wai Wong film. Through the crowd comes a young woman all in orange, from her hair, sunglasses, lipstick, jewelry, and clothes to her nail polish. She drops a plastic bag containing a goldfish. He picks it up, gives chase, and stares at her after the train door has closed before he can reach her. He takes her photograph. The next day, wearing the same jacket, he waits for her, but on the wrong platform - again he sees her, runs, and reaches the train to stare at her as it pulls away. He has a surprise for her. Will all this ever bear fruit? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A weak story shot with style
21 December 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

While thousands of Amazon customers may be motivated by seeing short movies for the first time, this set of advertising "shorts" lowers the standards of what people should accept or expect from a short. Tony Scott's shots were interesting, and I enjoyed the lighting, but the jumpy cuts became old fast (even in a short).

Billed as a silent short, I'd hoped to be dazzled purely by the visuals. However, Agent Orange isn't a silent short, simply no dialog. Still, good visuals, and I thought the soundtrack was additive without being distracting.

Similar to most of these Amazon shorts, the plot was unsatisfying. Amazon! Shorts can tell good stories, even if they exist primarily to sell merchandise (it's the future of TV too). The original plot point hinted that the goldfish would be returned, perhaps as an icebreaker to meet the girl. At the end, no fish, no icebreaker, just instant life-long love. Part of my problem with the ending is that the casting and the clashing wardrobe distracted me. I felt sad watching the sloppily-dressed youngish Orange Boy mooning over the stylish, seemingly more mature Orange Girl. I cringed at the unearned ending. (Regarding my age comments, becareful judging those book covers ... if my Internet research is correct, he's several years older.)

Nice to look at, but I'd only recommend it to cinematographers or directors.
