Storyline

Paris, 1969. The filming of a sci-fi movie set in the distant year 2000 is in trouble. The director's obsession with the actress who plays the sexy secret agent Dragonfly has clouded his judgment and the film has no ending. A young American, in Paris to document his life on film with total honesty, is brought in to finish the movie with a bang. This proves to be difficult when the line between his fantasy life and reality becomes blurred, and he finds himself seduced by the charms of Dragonfly. Written by Kimberly

Quotes

Paul: It's a science-fiction film about a futuristic spy named Dragonfly.
Dr. Ballard: Oh, well that's interesting. Your grandmother used to call dragonflies "the devil's darning needles." She told me that they come in the night and stitch up your mouth if you use profanity or were otherwise voluble.
Paul: This isn't exactly about that...
Dr. Ballard: Well, maybe you can use it somehow.
Paul: Thanks, Dad.
Dr. Ballard: You never know when some little overheard story or image can find a place in your work.

good student film
7 July 2004 | by tritisanSee all my reviews

Folks, I really, really wanted to like this film. Alas, I found myself looking at the DVD's timer, wondering when the thing would end. So many elements are likable: groovy sixties design, groovy music, groovy chicks, groovy references to (truly) groovy sixties flicks with chicks. But it doesn't hold together. It doesn't flow. It doesn't involve you.

The self-referential dialog and editing had the cloying and self-conscious feel of a student film. (And I had to sit through plenty of those in college, including my own ;-)

Overall, I think Roman has promise, but he has a lot of catching up to do with his sister.
