"Aesthetic film experiment..."
28 November 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Per Fly is back five years after his Denmark-trilogy with a revitalized film style and new actors.

Fashion photographer K has had dreams of a strange man. One day she sees a man who looks exactly like the man of her dreams on a restaurant and follows him. When she sees him again the next day at the same place he approaches her.

Per Fly made a clear mark within Scandinavian film in the beginning of the 21st century with the modern social realistic trilogy: "The Bench" (2000), "The Inheritance" (2003) and "Manslaughter" (2005), which depicts the different social classes in Denmark. Five years later the Danish film-instructor is back with a multinational and aesthetic film experiment where he and co-writer Dorthe Høgh tells a passionate tale about a happily married woman and mother who finds herself overpowered by a recurring dream. Per Fly's fourth feature film is an ongoing journey between the surreal and the real, from Copenhagen to Warszawa to Paris, and this is strengthened by the non-linear narrative structure, the long takes without dialog, the atmospheric score, the versatile cinematography, the ambiguous close-up shots and Per Fly's confident filming where he visualizes nice perspectives from his own and the main characters point of view.

"The Woman That Dreamed About a Man" starts off as any kind of romance about a mutual attraction between two strangers from different cultures that has similar lifestyles, but changes rapidly by the director's narrative choices which invites the viewer's into a universe of dreams where the psychological, the erotic, the mystic and the abstract are interlaced while a study of character evolves. Sonja Richter, one of Denmark's most skilled actresses delivers an enthralling performance in a risky role where she has to express more through her eyes than with her lines and emotional repertory. The chemistry between her and Marcel Dorocinski, who does a good job in his role, is present mostly due to Sonja Richter's expressive interpretation. This is a stylish thriller and a radiant figment of imagination that's characterized by Per Fly's enhanced film style where he focuses on the aesthetic, the fictive and the narrative aspects of the film language.
