35mm print “In this early comedy, Moretti casts himself as Michele, a filmmaker living with his mother and trying to complete a screenplay entitled—ominously—’Freud’s Mother.’ With a nod to Fellini’s 8 1/2, fiction and reality intermingle as the hapless cineaste begins to daydream scenes from his opus. The hallucinations culminate in a bizarre game-show scene, in which filmmakers engage in a verbal battle royale. Sweet Dreams, according to its director, ‘is not a film about cinema and it’s not even about the torments of an artist… There’s suffering and pain in my film, but that’s not cinema, that’s life.’” – Harvard Film Archive
