Product Description

Product Description

David Arquette, Brad Hunt, Cathy Moriarty and Kathryn Erbe star in this irreverently romantic road trip written and directed by Finn Taylor. Hoping to fulfill his unusual fantasies in grand style, fast-talking Nick (Brad Hunt) makes a pact with his eccentric neighbor Terry (David Arquette): If Terry will bankroll the adventure, Nick will help Terry realize his own particularly bizarre fantasies. The unlikely duo embark upon a wild spree ending in a hometown reconciliation for Nick, a profound revelation for Terry, and a heart-stopping surprise for all who follow


Named after a line in The Godfather, Finn Taylor's directorial debut offers proof that movies about death don't have to be grim. Like Harold and Maude--but grittier--Taylor (Cherish) keeps the tone light and quirky. If you were to ask, he might even say that Dream with the Fishes is actually about life, but Terry (David Arquette) really does want to die and Nick (Brad Hunt) really does have only a few weeks to live. Death is what binds the two together. They would otherwise have nothing in common. The men live in the same San Francisco neighborhood, but Terry is a depressed widower with a penchant for voyeurism, while Nick may be terminally ill, yet he and his tattoo artist girlfriend, Liz (a virtually unrecognizable Katherine Erbe from Law and Order: Criminal Intent), live life to the full. They're just the medicine that the (psychically) ailing Terry needs. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

OK I first witnessed this film at a Film Festival A long time ago. After I dragged all my friends to see it I bought it on VIDEO then came the DVD REVOLUTION. I slowly starting replacing ALL MY VIDEOS w/ DVDs. After everything was said and done I was left with a few films on video that COMMANDED that I hold onto my stupid VCR. THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE FILMS!!!! .... If you are wondering which 2 films I speak of I am refering to (bright lights big city) and (valley girl) their were others HOWEVER I CANNOT DITCH MY VCR FOREVER TILL I HAVE THESE 2 FILMS ....I can only now wait till MAY and the release of this DVD. Oh yes it is all coming together now..HA HA HA HAAA!!!

HASH(0x9e67b1f8) out of 5 stars I want everyone (reading this) to know.... Aug. 30 2001
By oregano_milk_prostate_gram_cracker_cluster_ball_13 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is the best film I've seen in a LONG time. (about a year or so). I honestly don't participate in many reviews, but i just finished viewing this film and felt that it deserves a review. I bought this film on Amazon (used) for a couple bucks (about 8 bucks incl. s+h) based on the positive reviews from viewers, and let me tell you it was WELL worth every cent. (I would of paid 3 times that price...even used !!) If you like quirky, off-beat characters, good dialogue, dark humor, romance, emotionally driven, road TRIPping kind of flicks....look no further than this little gem of a film. Trust me, I love ALL KINDS of films and I have seen (roughly) about 300 or so, and I can gladly say that this one definately ranks up there in the top 30 of my all time favorites. I'm not even going to tell you anything specific about the film because I already told you the jest of it all. No matter what films you have seen in a LONG time, I'm sure you will appreciate the splendid beauty of Dream With the Fishes. Even if you don't care too much for David Arquette, (I don't) give him a chance in this one because this has to be his strongest, most serious performance of his life, playing a seriously suicidal, yet deeply compassionate character. Brad Hunt is a newcomer to me, but his comical, yet serious performance drove this flick to perfection, not to mention the beautiful Katherine Erbe as the confused struggling girlfriend of Brad Hunts' character. Do yoursef a favor and check this one out if you haven't already. Better yet, just buy it here at Amazon. You can get it used at a decent price. Too bad it's not available on dvd, but hopefully will be soon. This film is very entertaining and you probably won't even want to leave your seat until the credits are over. Highly recommended for fans of indie films or fans of just plain good cinema. Do not hesitate to rent or even BUY this extraordinary film, and you can even get it in widescreen here at Amazon for a few more dollars, but it's WELL worh it. Hope you like it.....Actually I am going to view it again right now.....

HASH(0x9e67b24c) out of 5 stars Rare brilliance Jan. 4 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This is one of those unknown films which deserves to be known. Its is honestly one of the best films i've seen in a long time. Its a buddy movie, a unique one, that deals with one guy (Arquette) who is a social loser, and another guy (Hunt) who has a lust for life. The two go on a trip to fulfill Hunt's fantasies, which are hilarious in themselves, dropping acid at a carnival, bowling naked.. Its just really funny, but poignant at the same time. Brad Hunt totally reminds me of Gary Oldman in this movie, he's great. The only drawback may be Arquette who i don't like very much, but did a good job with his role. Its definitely worth seeing, its brilliant.

HASH(0x9e67b420) out of 5 stars A great movie! Aug. 24 2000
By Seth Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
This film, by director Finn Taylor, came out in 1997 and I saw it at an arthouse theater. I was so blown away by it, particularly the characters, the story, and some magnificent cinematography. Yes, it wasn't a box office smash, but I assume if you are looking for that kind of a film you'll rent a monstrosity like titanic or some other over-the-top special effects bonanza. Dream with the fishes is pure brilliance by a director, who seems to not have done anything since this 97 release. The home video version is great but still doesn't stand up to seeing this great film on the big screen, with a good sound system for the awesome soundtrack. Try to find the widescreen version, if possible. When the film is nearing the end and that beautiful Nick Drake song, 'River Man' is being played, I got tears in my eyes. It is extremely rare for me to become emotionally involved with characters in today's films, but this flick is one of the few exceptions. Arquette and Hunt are so great, regardless to what some other bone headed reviewer says. Check this one out, you'll be happy you did.

HASH(0x9e67ba44) out of 5 stars exploration of life, living, death and dying March 23 1999
By pchapman@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
Very touching film that deeply scratches the surface of the relationship between trying to live and die. Made me remember the old adage that if you aren't actively trying to live your life then you are in fact dying, so make it count. Dressed with humor and well portrayed emotion and events (Trip scene) this movie is very realistic and didn't leave me feeling like i had been preached to nor embarrassed that it had moved me so much. I hope you enjoy it as much as i did.
HASH(0x9e67ba68) out of 5 stars An excellent film. May 7 2013

A little unknown gem starring David Arquette. The DVD is lacking in special features but I am just thankful for finding a physical copy of this movie online.

The film, itself, is a melancholic and sometimes hilarious road trip between a suicidal peeping tom and a man who has a special motive behind the adventure he cons David Arquette into. I also love the soundtrack which includes greats such as Nick Drake, Tindersticks and Jeremy Enigk.
