A highly imaginative, surreal horror/comedy short!
2 May 2018 | by hugodinkumSee all my reviews

"In a Dream of a Muse" is an experimental short that makes you feel like you're seeing some strange dream of absurdity and surrealism. Part horror, part comedy and part of something else, this film doesn't really fit to any existing genre, but rather creates its own.

It's pretty much like a modern silent film, except the characters do some inarticulate utterances and the voices behind the screen read some bizarre poetry in several different languages. And it all sounds like crazy announcements at an invisible airport or something.

But of course it's the Steampunk visuals, interesting locations, music and soundscapes that contribute a lot to this film's special atmosphere and its intriguing mystery. Totally unpredictable, it takes you from one weird nightmare to another in a search of something continuously elusive.

The creator of this film, rock musician / filmmaker Arthur Mountaniol effortlessly plays the main role and the others, taking the viewer into the world of his nightmares and subconsciousness where things can stick together or fall apart in any order possible, without any coherency and where nothing seems to make any sense, especially to an eye of an ignorant philistine.

Recommended just for a few of those who might be looking for something genuinely artistic beyond the mainstream.

I also recommend to check out the music video "Ballad of the Evil Fate" because it offers another side to the same story which tells you what remains untold in this film.
