导演：梅瑞迪斯·丹卢克State Like Sleep is a film about the basic need for human connection and love. The title refers not only to a doctor's inadequate yet poetic description of what it's like to be in a coma, but also to the psychological state one can enter when dealing with trauma; emotionally closed off but acutely conscious, a blank exterior housing a rich interior life. The story enables this surreal state by pairing spiritual damage with awkward humor, thrill with mystery, and sexual spectacle with the sublime. State Like Sleep finds love and hope in unexpected places as it travels through the ups and downs of mourning and loss.One year after the untimely death of her husband, a young woman receives a phone call that pulls her back to Brussels and the life there that she's tried to forget. She is forced to finally confront her grief but is swept up in unraveling the mysteries surrounding her husband's last days alive.
