Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A minimalistic short film that is open for interpretation
19 December 2012 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This short film chronicles a man's discovery around his flat, after he wakes up from the new year party of the new millennium.

"X2000" is a minimalistic short film. It is just six minutes long, and the remaining two minutes are credits. It shows how the man wakes up, walking around the flat completely naked. He sees two men cuddled up in a sleeping bag. He sees a couple having sex in the opposite building. His girlfriend gets into a bath. Then he sees something under the bin. Such trivial everyday happenings are shown, and the purpose of the film is left for the viewer to interpret. I notice, the man looks very dazed with vacant stares towards the front, so maybe he is under the influence. Another interpretation I made is the disappointment of the girlfriend after she walks into the living room, seeing the man against the window.
