It could have been just a documentary of making an audiobook, or Beckermann could've told it the other way. But her carefully designed staging, editing compelled me to weave a second visual in my mind, "the waiting periods between these letter exchanges." Anticipation or agony fill the gaps of their life. This relationship consequently evolves, and then dissolves.
On the other note, the authenticity of these letters is never clear. "The Dreamed Ones" takes on a different meaning. Is the longing of two lovers the best love story we all dream to hear?
