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>

Taken in a certain way it's okay...
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seeing this film reminded me a lot of those certain moments when one sees someone else and just the tiny moment becomes burned into the mind. One can almost obsess over that moment and what one could have done to follow-up on it.

The editing and cinematography help advance this theme by being rather jumpy and dissolved (both with editing, focus, and general mise-en-scene). The orange is the most effective tool in this film, helping make things make more sense than if the largely useless close-ups were the only thing used for dramatic effect.

Unfortunately, this films style is excessive and also kind of works against its theme as well. While such moments in time, in my experience, are rather surreal, they don't tend to be as jumpy and chaotic. Instead, they seem more foundational, like a pause instead of a jump.

Of course this is assuming this movie is meant for that theme, when of course it's just an Amazon product in its own right. In that sense, this film is entirely useless. It doesn't do anything for Amazon, it doesn't do anything for Tony Scott, it's largely irregardless.

Best to take it as if it's a short with a story and a theme and see if you like how it portrays that theme. Otherwise don't bother.
