Shy and inhibited Stéphane possesses an extraordinarily active imagination and his vivid dreams often interfere with his ability to engage with reality. When he returns to his childhood home in Paris, he suddenly falls in love with his neighbor whose fertile imagination matches his own.
A cerebral romantic comedy that eagerly combines science fiction and fantasy, Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) conjures surprise after surprise in this imaginative, almost Buñuelian odyssey. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Gael García Bernal, and, oh yes, the legendary Miou-Miou.
