Michel Gondry, France/Italy, 2006, 35mm, 106 min. In French with English subtitles.

In this stellar companion piece to ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, love is a Rube-Goldberg machine, a succession of impossibilities beating with a papier-mâché heart. Stéphane (Gael García Bernal) is a charming oddball, a daydreamer who confuses his fantasies with reality and falls in love with the girl next door (Charlotte Gainsbourg), literally. As each approaches the other with trepidation, their tentative flirtation is at risk of becoming yet another dream he may soon awake from. A quirky wonder, euphoric from start to finish.
