Well it would seem that with Bondi Tsunami you either love it or hate it. There's no in between. I loved it. It is definitely something that needs to be watched and taken into your mind in a different way. The very way the music and imagery are presented to you is also a story telling tool, not just aesthetic. Each character has their own music, camera and editing style to go with them and convey their character without actions or words. This was very purposeful in it's style. The editing and colour grading in this movie were awesome. This was DV and look at the quality. Watch it again and notice how these elements of movie making affect how you think about the character's personalities.

Hypnotic, beautiful and ahead of it's time.
