J’ai rêvé sous l’eau – I Dreamt Under Water
Pictured on the poster is the main protagonist Hubert Benhamdine (as Antone) and Franck Victor (Alex) his bud from a scene from the start of the movie.
The quality of photography by Hormoz stands out, His direction a match for the full bodied story co-written by Philippe Arrizabalaga. IMDB says “In this savagely engaging drama fill with heart, lust and emotion, a bisexual man’s personal journey through the dark Parisian night opens his mind to a myriad of sexual possibilities.” Hmm, sounds like a lovely shopping trip – it ain’t a shopping trip nor is it “lovely”! Hubert Benhamdine the main protagonist is on cam prob 98% of the film,[sure to shock some]..simple story well executed, get the dvd.
Jean is young, gay, and promiscuous. Only after he meets one or two women, including Laura does he come to realize his bisexuality. Cyril Collard wrote, directed and starred in the film and won a Best First Film at the Césars in 1993. One of four Césars. What a year. Cyril’s everything saturates the film, he and Romane Bohringer stand out. It won Césars in Best Film, Best First Film, Best Film Editing, and Best Female Newcomer – Romane Bohringer.
