Rating: 2.5/4 -- With such a bizarre premise it would seem that the film could easily get out of hand. Yet, with a master such as Clair at the helm, the plot development remains under control, offering some delightful insights. Full Review

Ceaselessly inventive. Full Review

It is eminently pleasing to this old film hand to discover that Rene Clair still has an amiable feeling -- and a talent -- for the craft of cinema. Full Review

Product Description:

A young music teacher with a penchant for elaborate dreams bounces through time in his daydreams, finally beginning to accept reality when he falls in love.

Plot Synopsis:

Claude, a young music teacher fed up with his drab and boring life, finds refuge in a series of dreams. Each detailed fantasy takes place in a different time and country, and in each one he meets a new and beautiful woman. In these reveries, Claude finds the excitement and adventure he's longed for: at the turn of the 20th century he is a noted composer who courts the beautiful Edmée; in 1840 he is a polished army officer stationed in Algeria who visits a harem and encounters the voluptuous Leila; and during the French Revolution he meets the glamorous Suzanne.
But as each dream turns into a nightmare, Claude is forced to awaken -- and finally find his true love in the real world.
