Alvin’s Harmonious World of Opposites
“Alvin’s Harmonious World of Opposites is a one of a kind Australian feature which we believe heralds a great new talent and can certainly take the title of one of the most unusual Australian films of recent years.” – Richard Sowada – Director, Revelation Perth International Film Festival
‘..INSANE, kind of incredible, ambitious, original and mad. All at once.’– The Acme Film Company
‘…sensitive, stylized, quirky – a completely different shade of f**cked up..’ – Stefan Popescu – Program Director, Sydney Underground Film Festival
‘..an offbeat, challenging little gem that you’ll be turning over in your head for days.’ – FilmInk Magazine
Alvin spends his days working as a Japanese translator, carefully creating the illusion of everyday normality. But then there is all that panda stuff, the good- looking girl downstairs that Alvin spies on but can’t summon the courage to approach and the mysterious substance that just keeps dripping from the ceiling. When his crazed and angry neighbour goes on a crusade to rid the block of units of a suspected flea infestation and with tensions in his life and home increasing – Alvin is forced into the ceiling to investigate. In order to bring back peace and harmony Alvin must face his captive emotions and accept the stains that permeate his sheltered existence.
