Storyline

"Lucid Dreams Of Gabriel" is a surrealistic and non-linear story about a mother achieving immortality through her son, unconditional love, and the fluidity of time. The film portrays a moment of transition, from life to afterlife, with the story being told from three different perspectives - a mother, her son, and the messenger who can alter the time. Simona and her son Gabriel travel through three realms - a present moment (at 24 fps), supernatural world (at 48 fps) and a lucid dream (at 48 fps) - in order to discover the purpose of their lives. But, in order to fulfill that purpose, Simona must give away her life afore. Through an afterlife mirror, Simona views the last few minutes of her life with her son. Later, as Gabriel falls asleep, Simona receives a small gift of time from a Messenger. As the sands of time quickly run out, she appears to Gabriel in his dream, in order to deliver a message that he will never forget. Written by Anonymous

a mother. her son
21 September 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

An experimental film. A mother, her son, a long way, a noble answer to the quest. All is seductive, delicate and beautiful. Bitter and cold. As a sort of nostalgia. Because the subject is the life. And the message after it. The love and the manner to assume it. And the tender perspective about meetings and gestures and desire. An experiment precious for its mark in the memory of viewer. The slow motion, the symbols and the fragility of border between fantastic and reality is more than admirable.
