The Science of Sleep

This is the title of the new movie from Michel Gondry, that premiered at the last Berlin Festival. After the brilliant "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind", the cast of the new film looks promising: Gael García Bernal, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Alain Chabat, Miou Miou and Emma de Caunes. The plot seems quite familiar territory for Gondry: "A man held captive by the people in his dreams tries to wake himself up and take control of his own imaginings". If you don't know any of his work, a good start is to see the Directors Label DVD dedicated to him, which features the work he has done with The White Stripes, Beck, Daft Punk, Cibo Matto, Massive Attack, Kylie Minogue and, among others, 6 excellent videos that he directed for Björk.
