Dream Life

Mirielle Dansereau?s free-form romp, heavily influenced by the French New Wave, intercuts the dreams, memories, and home movies of two young women as they fantasize about men and spout 60s cliches like “We just want to see things change.” The film?s improvisational and sometimes inventive pastiche recalls other feminist art of the period, but judging from the bubbly leads one might easily argue that all women are airheads, though the male characters seem even more retarded. Described as the “first fictional feature made by a woman in Quebec,” this was probably a bit dated even upon its 1972 release, but it?s interesting now as a period piece, reminding the more nostalgic among us how silly the 60s could be.
