I Dreamt of You so Much That…, the title of a 1936 poem by Robert Desnos, is a film made of seven shorts that together present one vision from different perspectives.  It examines intimate moments in the lives of seven couples, who question, challenge and push the limits of their relationship, while blurring the lines between private and public spaces, often to potentially disturbing yet uncertain conclusions. The stories treat the violence and complexity of interaction between men and women, alienation, and the illusion of true connection with the other.

Ştefan Constantinescu (1968, Bucharest), is a visual artist and filmmaker living in Stockholm, Sweden and Bucharest, Romania.

In 2009 he represented Romania at Venice Biennial. He explores the issues of identity and memory through films, books and paintings. His fictional movies are shot in a seemingly documentary style fitting stylistically within the Romanian New Wave, revealing the violence underlying human relationships in contemporary society.
