Three naked couples sleep, make love, and awake in an empty skyscraper littered with millennium party debris in one of four provocative shorts from France's most acclaimed young director, Francois Ozon. (French with English subtitle)
A fashion photographer with terminal cancer elects to die alone, preparing others to live past him rather than prolong the inevitable with chemotherapy or be smothered in sympathy by those who know him.
Morning has broken on January 1, 2000. A man rises from his bed, leaving a woman asleep. He walks through an apartment littered with the detritus of last night's party. Twin men are asleep in a single sleeping bag on the floor. He sees a couple making love in an apartment across the way. The woman rises, sees him staring out the window, and runs a bath. As she soaks and the twins sleep, he makes a discovery beneath a wastebasket. Quiet morning-after ruminations continue.Written by
This little waking-up-the-day-after short is, once again, a testimony to how audaciously confident Ozon is in his film-making abilities. As with most of his shorts, this one is subversive - it seems very disjointed and unfinished, but it's actually very cleverly constructed, with a beginning, middle and an end.
