Sweet Dreams (Fai bei sogni) (2016)
Critic Reviews for Sweet Dreams (Fai bei sogni)
You may fancy a nap of your own during this overlong, mother-fixated memoir.
Bérénice Bejo, who shows up late in the going as the protagonist's lover, makes the lead actor look even less charismatic by comparison.
The film is composed of several exquisite stand-alone sequences unsatisfactorily strung together on a thin cord of mother love, in a story of a middle-aged man unable to overcome the loss of his mother when he was nine.
Bellocchio stages a gentle, eminently watchable return to some of the key themes that have haunted his 50 years of filmmaking, particularly the scarring left by a dysfunctional family and maternal love gone awry.
Sweet Dreams is a sentimental, belated coming-of-age as an adult story, unavoidably deeply personal and with the intrinsically Italian sensibility of a mother's influence on her son.
