One of the very first feature-length Canadian narrative films to be directed by a woman, the humorous, intelligent, and wonderfully imaginative La Vie rêvée tells the story of two friends at a Montreal film production house who, despite seeing themselves as independent women, share the dream of finding the perfect man — but fantasy and reality soon crash head-on.

Ce film humoristique, intelligent et rempli d'imagination est l'un des premiers longs métrages narratifs réalisés par une femme au Canada. Il met en scène deux amies travaillant dans une entreprise de production cinématographique à Montréal. Même si celles-ci se perçoivent comme des femmes indépendantes, elles partagent le rêve de trouver l'homme parfait. Mais le fantasme et la réalité entrent bien vite en collision.
