je dois rêver (i must be dreaming)

"Uno, dos, tres, cuatro!
Hi, and welcome back to another episode of "Télévision Educative". Tonight, I'll show you how dreams are prepared. People think it's a very simple and easy process but it's a bit more complicated than that. As you can see, a very delicate combination of complex ingredients is the key. First, we put in some random thoughts. And then, we add a little bit of reminiscences of the day... mixed with some memories from the past.

That's for two people. Love, friendships, relationships... and all those "ships", together with songs you heard during the day, things you saw, and also, uh... personal... Okay, I think it's one."

If only...you can just whip up and concoct what you want to happen in you life. That why we dream, it's a reminder of what we want to do..and sometimes what we don't want to happen at all. I was wide awake when I watched Michael Gondry's 'The Science of Sleep', but it sent me to a whole new dimension.. (Twilight Zone theme comes in..hehe) the approach is whimsical, bold and raw. the visuals are very creative and fantasy-like, much like a version of a great dream, only weirder..
and well-scripted
..and in french and spanish
..and has subtitles:))

...and Gael is on it!
what a feast!

the film takes you along the life and mishaps of Stephane, a struggling artist trapped in a 9-5 job, while wooing her mother's tenant named Stephanie. As a young boy having troubles separating what's his dreams are from reality, you will get quite entangled on what's real and what's not..ahhh "distraction is an obstruction for the construction'!!! an unconventional love story, a beautiful exchange of witty lines, it's seemingly child-like but intelligent at the same time.it wasn't the film that i expected to see, but coming from the director of 'the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind', i sure know i'll be on a crazy-pony ride!


FACT: I've had 3, yes t-h-r-e-e trips to 3 different hair cutters this week, and ended up with an ala Greta-do (kinda, make it grow a li'l more) i was aiming for a Heart-ish bob just like in the June 2007 issue of marieclaire.huhuhuhu. how come they can't follow simple directions man!! what a 'mane' event. tsk tsk

FACT: i can be fickle, i see. hehe
