[About the dream sequences] My feeling was due to this way that I have of waking up gradually, which is uncommon. Some part of my brain—even though I’m awake—I’m still functioning as a dream. I think it’s like the start point of the story of Stephane’s issue, is that I can wake up and really believe and be convinced that the dream I experienced is a real memory and I really did that in real life. I think when I was younger I would wake up [and] would have a hard time to squeeze back my image perception in my real body. - Michel Gondry.
