Michel Gondry's overactive imagination alone makes the film worth seeing.

More amazing work from Gondry. If you're interested in a basic narrative, look away; if you prize inventive filmmaking, don't miss it.

The Science Of Sleep is truly a delight at times, a startlingly original piece of work that's not as accessible as Eternal Sunshine but is every bit as magnificent when in full flow.

It's kind of weird and very French, but don't let that scare you. The Science of Sleep is well worth your time.

Something like a Luis Bunuel film, but with politics replaced by fashion. It is, essentially, a hipster wet dream.

A visual treat from beginning to end.

A wondrously baffling jigsaw puzzle where dreams and reality struggle to find a fit, The Science of Sleep is the dream you wish you could have, if you could only remember it
March 24, 2007
A creative, original work by a filmmaker with a fantastic visual flair who refuses to stick to any typical cinematic patterns, even if it's sometimes to a fault.

The Science of Sleep is Gondry's loosest, most confident movie journey into the imaginative mind.

Another comic love story that takes us inside a character's psyche, but Kaufman's rock-solid jokes are replaced by whimsy.
February 16, 2007
Gondry always manages to maintain a childlike wonder in the magic of creating a moving image, and never is it more evident than in this film.

It's whimsical to the point of maddening. Bernal does his best, but there's only so much fawning any man can get away with.
February 16, 2007
A thwarted love story that does not trade in the degraded cliches either of romance or conventional sexiness.
February 16, 2007
There's a very thin line between amusingly quirky and just plain pretentious. I'd say this falls somewhere in the middle.
February 16, 2007
As the movie progresses, we're presented with one of the best portrayals of the innate awkwardness of first love I can ever remember seeing.
February 15, 2007
Beautifully directed, charmingly surreal and genuinely romantic, this is the perfect offbeat date movie and easily one of the best films of the year.
February 14, 2007
In the moment, Gondry and Bernal almost manage to give quirky a good name.
