The Science of Sleep
The Science of Sleep is another of my all time favourite films. It's kind of weird and I have some friends who don't get it at all. It is all about dreams and blurring reality, and I haven't seen another film portray that weird feeling you have when dreaming so well. It's French too and the characters go between English, French and Spanish but of course there are subtitles. I just think it's amazing, I love Stéphane and Stéphanie. Also, strangely this isn't a film set in Paris that makes me want to go to Paris (unlike Amelie which makes everyone long for twisting, romantic, old-fashioned Paris back streets), this makes Paris look quite average as it would to anyone who really lived there. But that might just be me. Also, the DVD is only £2.99 from Amazon so even you end up hating it, it's not like it cost you very much to give it a go!

The Science of Sleep concerns the flirtations and misunderstandings of Stéphane (played by Gael García Bernal), an aspiring visual artist, and Stéphanie (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg), his Parisian neighbour who creates whimsical sculptures from cotton balls and felt. As Stéphane toils in a caustic office for a company that makes calendars, he retreats into his dreams and finds them increasingly hard to distinguish from reality, and vice-versa. (from Amazon)
