意大利電影大師馬可貝洛奇奧新作,面對傷痛有五個階段,否定、憤怒、討價還價、抑鬱和接受。每逢處理生命中重大的傷心事,雖然未必會經歷所有階段,但人總會感受到以上的情緒。電影中的Massimo童年時突然失去母親,一直都未能接受,而這份悲傷更在他踏入四十大關時發揮關鍵作用。事業、愛情事事遇上瓶頸,終令他再一度陷入崩潰的邊緣。由康城影后貝妮絲碧祖和意大利影帝華拉里奧馬斯丹里亞主演,亦是導演與攝影師Daniele Ciprì第四度攜手合作。剖開人們堅實的盔甲,深入埋藏心底最敏感、細膩、纖弱的感性。

Memories are a key part of Sweet Dreams, and Bellocchio effortlessly brings to life those moments that are etched in the mind of Massimo: memories of a mother who is suddenly and cruelly taken from him. This loss will come to define Massimo as he continues to wrestle with it as he enters his forties. Starting a career as a reporter, he goes from one assignment to another before writing an advice column. Relationships come and go, until Massimo seems at his wits' end, and then along comes a woman who could be a replacement for his mother. Sweet Dreams is a deep work that will resonate with anyone who has dealt with loss. Working with cinematographer Daniele Ciprì for the fourth time, Bellocchio wraps his film in a delicate fabric of memory while remaining sensitive to the present-day struggles of his protagonist. This is perhaps the most emotional film we have seen from Bellocchio, but it avoids cheap melodrama.
