The animal is moving, it is impossible for it to stay still. The bodies vibrate, dance and desire” – this is the entirety of the film’s laconic official description; the rest is a picture. “The Dreamt Animal” evokes memories of Szifron’s “Wild Tales” not only because both tell multiple stories. The authors of both films portray moments in which rational human beings transform into a wild animals. However, while Szifron focuses primarily on Thanatos, the six Brazilians worship Eros. “The Dreamt Animal” is a joint debut by six young directors; it combines the innocence of one’s “first time” with an outright orgiastic perversion.
