A movie theater projectionist has a heart attack while wolfing down a tray of tex-mex nachos while movie previews are showing. Or does he? Le Dernier reve bounces the main character back and forth between realities, and maybe it was all a dream.
This is a remarkable film for only being 15 minutes long. In that length of time, director Emmanual Jespers manages to make a film that's every bit as intriguing as its feature length progenitors and descendants (The I Inside (2003) is one film that may have been influenced by Le Dernier reve). Jespers creates an atmospheric fantasy world of tunnels and underground lairs in a conventional building and basement, and a fascinating "youth" who may be manipulating reality. This is worth a watch from anyone who likes darkly surreal films in the "what is reality?" genre.
