Movie Reviews By Bil Antoniou

Ibiza Dream (El Sueno De Ibiza)

IbizaDreamBB

Directed by Igor Fioravanti

Spain, 2002

Two boys and a girl become best friends while growing up in sunny Ibiza, later separated for years until they are reunited as adults. The one young man has returned in order to achieve his dream business of opening up a spiritual centre focusing on new age philosophies.  He wants his friends to join him, but the other two resist; the idea of something so heady goes against the idyllic hedonism that Ibiza seems to stand for in European vacationers’ minds. The paths they follow towards their eventual destinies are never for a moment compelling or interesting; this movie is slow, badly written and the characters thoroughly unlikable. The lush photography is the only appeal, but it is meager compensation.
