The Science of Sleep (2006)

***
France/Italy

Gael García Bernal has trouble distinguishing his dream-life from his day-to-day. Michel Gondry (directing his first feature script) is half-fascinated by this condition, but mostly he just wants to make a feature-length video clip with trippy effects. It's Bernal - in a refreshingly unaffected performance - who brings in some humanity.

wr/dir: Michel Gondry
cast: Gael García Bernal, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alain Chabat, Miou-Miou, Pierre Vaneck, Emma de Caunes, Aurélia Petit, Sacha Bourdo, Stéphane Metzger
