    Complex, Resplendent and Moving

    It is the conversations that we do not have that often haunt and
    perplex us the most about our relationships. A little girl does what
    she can to assist a wounded friend, a young couple sings and sleeps
    together in a foreign land, a lethal dose of drugs is administered to a
    parent and a marriage falls apart without accusation or reproach. Few
    words are exchanged in each situation, yet hearts are bound together,
    broken, strengthened or diminished. Conversation is futile or
    ineffectual. The moments pass mysteriously as in a dream. Words are
    replaced by music, the serenity of nature, impulsive and incomplete
    gestures and other indefinable things.

    The Dreamed Path is a complex, resplendent and moving meditation on
    human nature, the limitations of words and the defining yet vague
    moments from the past that flit beyond our reach like uncatchable
    butterflies. Too often directors and actors attempt to control how we
    think and react, yet Schanelec deftly leaves such choices to audiences
    as well as her characters. ”Do not think, just feel,” she urged the
    audience before the film began at the 2016 Toronto International Film
    Festival. It is good advice, for facts are artificial, malleable and
    truly stranger than fiction. We cannot hope to know what the characters
    do not even know for themselves. Wonderfully, the same logic pervades
    the film’s cinematography. It seems like there are no cameras present
    as we float around the characters and become part of their decisions
    and lives.
