Storyline

Tommy Matisse is a gifted musician studying at London's Royal Academy of Music, where he is striving to write a brilliant new operatic song called "One Perfect Day" in conjunction with his girlfriend Alysse back in Australia. When Tommy's sister Emma dies of a drug overdose after a night of clubbing with Alysse, he returns to Melbourne and breaks up with Alysse when she admits her part in Emma's death. As Alysse seeks solace in drugs and in the arms of a manipulative nightclub owner, Tommy undertakes an odyssey of self-discovery and tragedy in Melbourne's dance music scene. Fate brings them together again when Tommy reworks their opera by infusing classical music with electronic beats, but further tragedy is just around the corner... Written by Alexander Lum

requiem for a dream vs human traffic
26 September 2005 | by ultraluzerSee all my reviews

this film is the adequate balance between the two films mentioned above. it shows why an outsider would be drawn into the world of e's and clubbing, and at the same time illustrating how easily drugs can shred people's lives from one moment to the next. the science fiction element is a classically trained composer writing operas being drawn into the world of fatboy slim and ministry of sound and sticking to it despite the tragic events that are an an indirect result of it, but at least it depicts drug use, so it's a safe bet that 80% of all English speaking students around the world will see it sooner or later. all cynicism aside though, i consider this to be a tolerably written, beautifully directed and beautifully shot film with a soundtrack that limewire will be grateful for. most cynicism aside, i meant.
