The Science Of Sleep

The Science Of Sleep is a film by Michel Gondry starring the delicious Gael Garcia Bernal and the beautiful Charlotte Gainsbourg. It's about a man seduced by his dreams and imagination who attempts to show his world to the french beauty he's smitten with. I love love love Michel Gondry films, I think he makes such unique, magical and innovative films. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind is one of my favourite films ever. I really like how he captures the compexity and pain of people falling in and out of love. The way Gael's character continues to distort reality and retreat further into the recesses of his mind and dreams in order to connect with this woman is both magical and heartbreaking. It's a visually brilliant movie, like being a kid again and rediscovering the wonder in the world. Incidentally, co star Charlotte Gainsbourg is also a really good musician.
