Dream Life

0 Love It
Save it
A film about sexism and women's liberation which is ideologically clear and cohesive, uncompromising, and well made. Two young girls, one working class, the other middle class, meet at work and become friends. Finding it hard to live in the present, and that their fantasies bear no relation to the way they experience men's attitudes to them, they lure one of their dream lovers to act out 'his' reality; he fails, and the grip is broken; they have proved that the real men they know are peripheral to their lives, and thus are no longer dependent on their own fantasies. Filmed as a punctuated story - with narrative, fantasy, flashback and slow-motion - it's a superbly rounded and sensual presentation of ideas.
