The Science of Sleep
I just finished watching a movie that was so visually appealing, artistically produced and laugh-out-loud-funny, I had to write about it. Fear not, this is not a movie review . What tickled my funny bone was the performance of Gael Garcia Bernal, in the lead role of The Science of Sleep. He plays Stephane, a half Mexican, half French young lad returning to Paris after his fathers’ death. Although he’s trilingual, his attempt at speaking French in front of his love interest makes him nervous leading to an interesting new language all together. And that, is what had me giggling like a little school girl. Stephane is not dyslexic, but it sounds like he is when you see the film. Although there is so much more to the movie than language barriers, that aspect of Stephane resonated with this bilingual chick. So if you find humor in language, are interested in disasterology and enjoy eye candy, be sure to check out this film.
