Only one of its kind
14 February 2004 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Day dream is a very strange movie... I don't know if it makes part of some Japanese trend but, in my opinion, nothing compares to it in underground European or US cinema. A man, in western suit, and a woman, in traditional costume (with obi) are going to be operated by a dental. While they are getting asleep, the man looks (is he sleeping and dreaming ?) at the dental and the nurse who, as vampires, begin sucking the body of the woman and taking off her clothes. After they escape from the place, begins a kind of quest through the town at night (in buildings, in the streets, in a supermarket, in a lunapark...) to keep the woman safe from the devil dental but the woman behaves as a good willing victim for her prosecutor... The movie looks like a nightmare, with underground violence and explicit sex (few scenes but so explicit that I don't understand why it's not X rated...) and bondage. I don't think a European director could have been able to make this movie. And, above all, I don't think a producer could have provided the director with such support and facilities to make such a movie.

Maybe, censors proved able to be sensitive to its very weird, sometimes chilling, glittering feelings... I think that this movie, as a dream, can have as many interpretation as viewers.
