How Did I Miss This Movie!
This week I saw The Science of Sleep and I'm in love with it's quirky, artistic, imaginative vibe. I think it might be up in my top 5 movies.
I don't want to reveal too much about the film but... it's a love story that takes place in France. The hero of the film jumps between dream, reality, expectation, and imagination. He's an artist who creates various "inventions". He ends up falling in love with his new neighbor who is a shy creative type who has art projects of her own.
The film is directed by Michael Gondry who also directed Be Kind, Rewind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and music videos for Bjork, White Stripes, and Beck. I love Amelie as well and I think this one has some similarities. I recommend checking it out if you enjoy quirky love stories.
