Critic Reviews

There are several movies that prove to us that low-budget does not always mean bad. By "low-budget" I'm referring to films that were made for $100,000 or less (compared to a typical Hollywood blockbuster's $100 million). "Aegri Somnia" is one of them.

About the title of my review, if the genre "arthouse" makes you cringe, then this film probably isn't for you. Long & wordless (yet beautifully shot) scenes, disorienting edits, unconventional camera angles & effects, and deliberately 2-dimentional characters populate this film from start to finish. But in case you didn't guess by the title of the film, Latin for "a sick man's dreams", the presentation is absolutely perfect for what the movie intends to show us.

The story is about "Edgar", a socially awkward misfit whose station in life is something akin to Tom Hanks in "Joe Versus the Volcano" or Jonathan Pryce in "Brazil", except that Edgar makes those guys look like captains of the football team. Stuck in a lousy job, lousy marriage, dreary existence, and worst of all, a psychological hell that leaves him maladjusted, maladroit and malcontent, Edgar begins to come apart at the seams. Particularly, it's the psychological hell that begins to take hold of him as bizarre tragic events further complicate matters.

If this theme brings to mind other low-budget masterpieces like "Pi", "Ink" or my favorite undiscovered gem "Dark Mind", then you're on the right track. Very stylish and very cryptic, "Aegri Somnia" is a real treat for fans of dark, psychological surrealism. It has a visual style of its own, shown mostly in black & white with excellent, and I mean EXCELLENT lighting, a lot like the film-noir-ish classics of the last century like Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil", "Macbeth", "The Trial" or even Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". These are films that use the extreme, exaggerated visual tricks that would define the film noir genre (itself the result of creative low-budget productions) but coupled with some grand sets and spectacular cinematography to break up the claustrophobia.

On that note, my only real gripe, through no fault of the director & filmmakers, is that the grand approach led me to expect more than the budget would allow. The result was a little distracting. I'll give you an example. The opening scene shows Edgar walking through an enormous, bleak dreamscape with stark, brooding architecture and machinery in league with "Metropolis", but the use of mid-grade digital cameras (instead of jillion dollar Hollywood equipment) kept making me think it looked a little bit off. Note to any filmmakers out there: maybe presenting the final product at 24 fps (slower film speed) would make it look more dreamy instead of 30/60 fps crisp digital? But who cares, as an artistic piece, "Aegri Somnia" delivers. If you enjoyed any of the films I mentioned in my review, definitely give "Aegri Somnia" a spin. I guarantee you won't fall asleep. Heh heh. OK that was lame.
