Most of us have dreams. Many of us remember some of them. What are dreams? what is their purpose if any? do they have meaning or are just random mixtures of memories, feelings, images and sounds?
Dreams tend to defy many of our wake time rules, in them anything is possible, fly, teletransportation, miracles… in them the mind can find true freedom, no boundaries.
Michel Gondry has the unique ability to represent his unique dreams in films. Yes, we may dream like he does, but who can convert those impossible dreams to a series of shots and sequences accurately? very few… Gondry is one of them.
The Science of Sleep is a perfect example of Gondry’s amazing ability to create a dream world, his dream world.
