Michel Gondry's "The Science of Sleep" was acquired for $6 million by Warner Independent according to Indiewire's Eugene Kaufman (Eugene does it again); which, offhand, is the second largest aquisition thus far at Sundance("Little Miss Sunshine" was bought for $10 million). Gondry last helmed the indieish "Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind."

According to Musicvideowire:

"... Michel Gondry's science fiction doesn't explore outer, but rather inner, space, playfully reflecting the interaction between the worlds we inhabit: nature, society, and the mind. The Science of Sleep utilizes rudimentary techniques to craft a thoroughly complex vision of the lead character's brain, filled with the anxieties, hopes, fears, and yearnings that lie in all of us. Gael Garcia Bernal perfectly radiates these emotions as Stephane, a man trying to take control of his dreams because his life is slipping away.
