A wonderful new film that takes it's cues from the librettos of the classic Operas! AN Opera for the new millenium ...

Tragic, brutal, and beautiful all at once!!!! I love the soundtrack too!!!!

Currie's skill elevates the story from melodrama to something approaching art, but despite the clear emotions, as we enter deep into the bowels of the erratic rave scene, the story flounders a bit in parts.

Stylish Australian film, some great music, visually very nice. Well acted by a fine cast. I never got deeply involved in it though, it has an aloofness about it. Still, it's interesting and thought provoking.

Right from the first try-hard trailer, this film crudely signposted its intentions to tap into a subculture and address themes such as the electronic church, the 90s/00s Australian urban rave scene, unconventional artistic expression and grief and loss... And the result was cringeworthy. It was like 'the cool kids' in a year 10 high school media class decided they wanted to make a movie about how awesome and deep their weekend was. I think I liked this film when I was 18 - and I was an awful brat at 18.
Terrible script, screenplay, cinematography and yes, score. I felt sorry for the actors, most of whom have fortunately had fair chances to redeem themselves. Lucky for them, the whole thing was completely forgettable.

would love to get this on DVD, it is an excellent story, saw this in march 2005. Just watched it again via the internet and it's still as real and as moving and musically amazing as it was when I first saw this.....now I want to hunt down the soundtrack.

A stunning audiovisual journey of tragedy, lost love and musical experiments. For me its a huge mystery this one never made the big screens here in Europe where the electronic music dance scene is massive. Maybe because of the fact there are no famous actors, not really any goodlooking people in it, no steamy sexscenes or actionpacked frames of explosions and gunfire.. This is truly an beautiful story with awesome tunes to it!!

Brilliant musical score.. Visually pleasing in all regards.. Story line so-so.. I remember when they filmed the party's for this & I think I went, but can't remember if it was a gonna go or actually went.. Aaahh.. Trip down memory lane to the days of Rave parties, Warehouse parties, Outdoor Doofs, Rod Laver parties & THUMPIN' tunes.. 'Dem were the perfect days!

Brilliant movie. Not because of the plot, not because of the actors, not because of the music, but for the great combination of all theese things. It has the old "love, pain and suffering" story that we've seen a lot of, but this movie has a pinch of that something called "difference" in it - the same story but a whole new way to express it. And "expression" is the key word here...

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. The moral of the movie was twisted. I waited to the end to see the twist in the tail - but to no avail. So the male lead must give up his career, go back to digging ditches, live in a busted house, send his kid to a decrepid school and condemn her to a squalid life, because he doesn't attend his kids school play. I want to throw up!!!!

Excellent tunes, well shot in great locations, less about the Aus dance scene than expected but respect to the ideas and visuals throughout the movie!!!!
