Overview

Greta can’t bear to leave her childhood. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her friend Elliott. A world that’s weirdly erotic, a bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous, only there can she find herself.

Review

Greta meets Elliott on the first day of her new school. Greta doesn’t want to grow old. Elliott also floats in loserdom. Greta, a loner in the school, confronts a group of girls attacking her and falls in a trouble due to unintended situations. The director lightly follows the daydreams of a girl and expresses the traces in various textures. An important turn comes with Greta’s 15th birthday. The musical-like scenes with the invited classmates and the moonlit lake imply that the real title of Girl Asleep can be “Girl in a Dream.” It is the cinematic visualization of a girl in puberty. Girl Asleep, an Australian coming-of-age film, offers more than a fairytale in the borderline between fantasy and reality. (LEE Sang-yong)
