Indie Movie Review – Monochrome: The Chromism

Read Time:1 Minute, 30 Second

monochrome-posterTo be brutally frank Monochrome: The Chromism is a bit of a mess.

Incidentally, I have to refer to this film by its full name, Monochrome: The Chromism, as there’s a 2016 film called Monochrome which is a totally different story.

Anyway, Monochrome: The Chromism starts off with a chap driving cross country, walking through a battlefield, by a wrecked building, across a desert… and there’s pigeons and a party.

The chap says he is the first of the ‘hues’ and seems to have some rudimentary contact with someone else. For no apparent reason he gets into a situation that ends up with him being captured, and we cut to “One Year Earlier” and the story of how he became a hue is told.

A hue is a person who is “glowing” — which is shown by them being in colour against the black and white background and other characters. This is used to hammer home the message of how stupid any form of inequality is when you get down to it.

So it’s the same basic story that was told in Pleasantville, but done in a much more heavy-handed fashion.

There are garbled, half-told explanations about a war between England (not the UK, so that’s a bit odd) and the USA, and the use of biological weapons, without saying by whom. Neither of these storylines gets adequately resolved. The whole thing just leaves you feeling frustrated and confused. The end doesn’t land anywhere near the beginning or tie up any loose ends.

On the plus side, it was beautifully shot, and the colour effect of the hues was well done.

It’s just a pity about the acting, dialogue, story, and direction.

Movie Watching Must Have!!

I go feral for this app. I love it so much and I wish everyone knew about it and used it. It is incredibly useful and I would be devastated if this app ever disappeared. Things I love: 1) the pee times! It’s so handy to know the best time to go and then read the synopsis of what’s happening while I’m gone. I never have to worry about missing the good bits! 2) knowing if there is a post-credits scene or not. This might be my fav feature because I would have missed out on some pretty critical scenes if it weren’t for RunPee. 3) the movie review and viewer rankings. This info has made me watch some movies that I normally wouldn’t and it’s nice seeing things outside of my usual scope. 4) that it’s a small family run business. I love shopping small and it really does feel like I’m part of the RunPee family! If you reach out to them, Dan will personally respond to you and he is so warm and helpful. GET THIS APP AND THEN SUBSCRIBE! It is absolutely worth it and you’ll be using it again and again!

  1. Damn. I hoped it would be better than Pleasantville, at least, which I thought was too mean-spirited. I wanted something better on this theme.

    In a way, Warm Bodies did this. Thematically. And that’s a nice little movie. A zom-rom-com!
