White-coller drudge by day. Genius by night - and any other time likeable, clever Stephane (Gael Garcia Bernal) dreams. Because it's on his magic carpet of dreams where Stephane headlines Stephane TV, builds a mighty cut-and-paste wonderland, pens a bestseller and sweeps the lovely girl next door (Charlotte Gainsbourg) off her feet and into his arms. If only he could make his dreams (at least the last one) come true!
Michael Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) writes and directs the quirky, quixotic, constantly inventive romantic fantasy of imagination vs. logic, dreams vs. reality. Wake up and smell the possibilities. The Science of Sleep is a movie to amaze, dare and delight you....and to whisper to the dreamer within.
