T O in 2 4 is a cinematic voyage that traverses a landscape of rituals, traditions and everyday miracles that define us as human beings. As 24 cinematographers seek out the heart and soul of a single city, in a single day, no one could have ever imagined the scale and power of the imagery they would capture. Through a story uniquely its own, the film transcends preconceptions and paints an emotionally stirring tapestry of hope and compassion. Through stunning visuals cut to a captivating musical score, it speaks of a global unity, in a language that has no enemies. Like a cycle of life contained within a single day - birth, death, sorrow, joy - T O in 2 4 weaves a heartfelt tale that touches the complexity humankind, while unearthing the multicultural soul of our humanity.Written by
Saw this at a screening in Toronto, Canada on Sep. 22, 2011, where the director was in attendance.
The visuals were quite good, especially the use of time-lapse and wide angle lenses. But the scripted dialogue, imitating a radio call-in show, was abominable, to the point of the person beside me whispering "Is it just me or is the dialogue really corny?".
I think the film will be appealing to those with an interest in seeing the goings on of a day in Toronto, but it may find limited appeal elsewhere.
Unless the dialogue is totally redone.
Redone as in completely gutting the über-phony radio host with painful "radio guy" voice, and sans amateurish callers-in. Speaking of which, it was a bit suspicious how they all had the exact same tonal quality, i.e., obviously altered EQ settings attempting to emulate the "phone sound".
