Movie Info

Twenty-two-year-old Tommy Matisse (Dan Spielman) is a student at the Royal Academy of Music in London who dreams of writing an opera that will speak truth in the chaos of the contemporary world. Consumed by his unrelenting search for inspiration and his powerful love for girlfriend Alysse (Leeanna Walsman), Tommy remains deaf to the desperate cries of his younger sister Emma (Abbie Cornish). When Emma and Alysse go out for a night of partying and Emma suffers a fatal overdose, Alysse's burden of guilt becomes too weighty to bear and she soon seeks to tell Tommy the truth about his sister's death. Subsequently torn apart by Tommy's anger and Alyssa's sorrow, the pair both embark on solitary journeys that find Tommy making a name for himself in the Melbourne club scene, and self-destructive Alyssa falling under the drug-addled influence of powerful music producer and nightclub owner Hector Lee (Andrew Lee). Though Tommy and Alyssa are later reunited when their paths intersect at the club where Tommy is DJ'ing, the resulting rage of jealous Hector threatens to spell tragedy for all involved. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Frenetic, rhythmic and rousing, the film is a kaleidoscope of intensity, as we enter deep into the bowels of the erratic rave scene. The story may flounder in parts, but the emotions are clear.

Audience Reviews for One Perfect Day

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.
