Science of Sleep, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Visually clever but unsatisfying drama set in Paris about an imaginative, if dysfunctional, young man (Gael Garcia Bernal) whose timid budding romance with his kindred-spirit neighbor (Charlotte Gainsbourg) is complicated by his chronic confusing of reality and dreams. Writer-director Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") charms with inventive flights of fancy -- by turns sweet and surreal -- but the film is sabotaged by Gondry's affection for dreamlike images over coherence. In English, French and Spanish with subtitles. Recurring rough and crude language, some sexual images and lewd humor, and a few instances of brief, partial, nonsexual nudity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
