It is a curious thing that the handsome Joe Odagiri speaks Japanese throughout the whole film while all the other characters speak Korean and yet everyone understands each other in this mystical Jungian reflection on the Buddhist Yin/Yang attraction.

So someone has sleepwalking so bad that they get in car accidents. The police know about it. No one attaches her to the bed or anything? Timed locks? No! Just don't sleep, that's the solution! Well directed but boring drama.

I'm usually impressed by Kim Ki-duk, but "Dream" falls flat and is a bore to watch. However, even as a letdown, the narrative goes in unexpected places every once and while. Looking at connectivity in different ways is always a fun topic to explore, but "Dream" isn't as thought out as the director's other works (or as a lot of works for that matter).

i love films like this that require you to pay attention and reflect on what's taking place. for me this film does that very well; however the conclusion seemed like a forced resolution that didn't fit with the other elements... maybe worth another watch...

I'm actually a fan of "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring" so I was eager to check out more of Kim Ki-Duk's work. This is not as good as that film, IMO but still a very good one. A man discovers his dreaming is connected with a sleepwalking woman and unexpected consequences happen when they meet. I personally think if Takashi Miike directed an "In the Mood For Love"-type film, it would be similar to this. Despite the supernatural/thriller/horror elements, these take a backseat to the romance that develops between these two people. It doesn't always work but the film has great acting and is well-made.

Strange piece of art from Ki-duk Kim, where thrill and suspense meets poetry !

Another Ki duk kim master piece...... Its really a cinematic poetry the director is showing one by one.

Two people discover they're linked through dreams; he dreams about getting back with his ex-girlfriend, she sleepwalks his actions with her ex-boyfriend. Together they strive to stay awake before things take a murderous turn. It's an interesting concept that begins strongly but rather peters out to a confusing conclusion. Nevertheless, even an average Kim Ki-duk film is still worth a look even if this is perhaps one of his more mainstream efforts.

Lee Na-young is gorgeous in her portrayal of of Ran. Otherwise, nothing else really worthy of note.

Artista plástico tem um pesadelo com um acidente que realmente acontece. A partir daí, sua vida começa a se confundir entre sonho, delírio e realidade.

Once again, Kim Ki-duk inserts his metaphorical finales that go way over my head. Does anyone understand his films on the first viewing, without analytical devotion? Eh, probably not, but who cares as long as there's wacky romance and momentary violence punctuating it. I was beginning to think I was going a bit crazy with the Japanese/Korean mix, but my stupid self forgot to relate it to the film concept about the dualistic yin-yang in daoist philosophy. A really intriguing concept, this idea that two seemingly unrelated characters when asleep become violently or sexually sonambulant and a witness to the sleepwalker, respectively. Directed in a sort of magical realist style, and a lot more talkative than Ki-duk's other films, this film's approach to the titular topic deserves more than one watch.

kind of a cool idea, and deals in much of the similar concepts KKD explored in Rough Cut and Time, but doesnt work whatsoever.

Il rêve sans pouvoir agir, elle accomplit ses rêves à lui sans pouvoir les influer. Et ils vont se rencontrer. Avec une telle idee de base, on pouvait rêver d'un thriller : policier, fantastique, peu importe mais un truc qui aurait fait flipper le spectateur dans ses chaussettes, d'autant plus que les Coreens ne sont pas les derniers à livrer de petits bijoux dans ce domaine. Le thriller, c'est un peu l'orientation qu'a privilegiee le cineaste Kim Ki Duk...mais un peu, seulement. Car tout tourne beaucoup autour du regret et de l'inassouvi, des relations qui se font et se defont dans un climat emotionnel glauque et terriblement pessimiste. Loin de moi l'idee de penser que Kim-Ki Duk ne savait pas ce qu'il faisait, la qualite de l'image et des transitions prouve à satiete le contraire. "Dream" est une oeuvre sophistiquee, esthetisante, mortellement chiante.

Nice cinematography but it doesn't make sense in anyway. Pretty disappointing and painful to watch.

liked it at first but the dream therapy woman was annoying, and then it went on for too long and hit you over the head

Dream is not the usual Kim ki duk movie..It has too much conversations compared to the earlier kim ku duk movies i watched....The communication between the characters is more verbal rather than the usual painstakingly thought out visual presentation that kim ki duk does.Towards the beginning the movie felt like one of those plot driven works but towards the second half it changes to something only kim ki duk could create..Overall the movie is visually appealing and thoroughly engaging though confusing at times..Good movie but definitely not for might enjoy it if you like kim ki duk movies..

Poesia e humor se dialogam novamente em Kim Ki-Duk, mas com um toque de sentimentalismo exacerbado a mais.

A very strange kind of film. It has a few interesting moments but Kim Ki-Duk's Dream is not all that nice!
