Picks and Pans Review: Science of Sleep

Gael García Bernal, Charlotte Gainsbourg

Gael García Bernal pulls off a hat trick: He's adorable in three languages (English, French and Spanish). In this wildly creative comedy from writer-director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), the elfin Mexican actor is a shy graphic artist who, upon moving to Paris from his homeland, has trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality. When he develops a crush on a neighbor (Gainsbourg) and she begins turning up in his dreams, life becomes seriously confusing. What Sleep lacks in plot, it more than makes up for with brilliantly imaginative visual sequences and an overall sweetness. (R)
