A young American studying in Paris in 1968 strikes up a friendship with a French brother and sister. Set against the background of the '68 Paris student riots.
Unbearable, conceited, snobbish. The film equivalent of pissing on someone else's toothbrush. Even more obnoxious when you watch it in a bad mood. Overall, The Dreamers showed potential and small glimpses of cinematic brilliance but I'm just too repulsed to care.
Bernardo Bertolucci is one of the undisputed masters of the erotic-drama genre and 2003's The Dreamers is as ever a Bertolucci erotic-drama experience as could be.
The characters, all played by uniquely beautiful actors (Michael Pitt with his defining lips and anemic quality, Eva Green with, well, everything, and Louis Garrel with his sharp features, prominent jaw, and dark eyes), are obsessed. The trio is obsessed with film—classic and French New Wave especially—and this is reflected by Bertolucci, who integrates what I imagine are films he loves seamlessly into both the written and visual aspects of The Dreamers.
The trio is obsessed with sex. And it's not so much that they're sex addicts, but that they're yearning to be a…
Bernardo Bertolucci is a man who knows what he likes. Of the movies I've seen that seems to be naked women and a bit of debauchery. From Maria Schneider's unorthodox use of butter in "Last Tango In Paris" to full frontal nudity of Rachel Weisz in "Stealing Beauty",he's a bit of a mucky puppy.
With "The Dreamers" he continued that trend with some eventful sex scenes and some near-the knuckle shenanigans involving the gorgeous Eva Green in a role that even her agent tried to talk her out of. Michael Pitt must also have had kittens at the thought of getting his knob out so frequently this felt like a biology documentary.
Set against the backdrop of the Paris student…
If it was 2003 and The Dreamers was screened in The Cinematheque, I'd be one of those cinephiles to sit upfront in the first row, consuming its images, sound and wisdom before everyone else in the other seats get to embrace them.
Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers is bizarre, strange & sexually proactive. Still its tender, revolutionary & a huge gift for cinema lovers. Its one of those instances where I'd just skip narrative inconsistencies for the love of the art form it represents.
The Dreamers lifts & pays homage to films of olden times, but its wisdom surpasses most of the tragically cinematic films that are prophesiers for youth in revolt.
Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers is something of a treasure. It's also a very difficult film to review, for me, and that's maybe because I'm perhaps too young to fully capture what it is trying to say or what it really means, but I'll nonetheless share my opinions on it.
What I feel is so great about The Dreamers is how it represents that time period in the 60's when cinema was actually a very important thing. It used to change people, how they see the world. their beliefs and hopes. I'm not saying it doesn't happen today, but there's no denying that there's not a big cinema cult nowadays like there was 50 years ago. And you can see that…
Really don't know what to make out of this, there are some heavy symbolisms . I don't think that great about this movie,maybe some of it may strike me on a rewatch.
Got to say, Eva Green is so damn beautiful.
Mmmmm French sibling threesome porn! It is cinematic porn in that it is:
a) cinematic in style
b) porn of the cinema, scenes from the classics abound and the whole sexual game exists on the rules of guessing famous or semi-famous scenes.
c) its just porn.
Not a lot of conflict mostly just pretty people having kinky sex. I think everyone is fine with this. Michael Pitt is very cornfed. Am not surprised his career is lacking now. I think.
This is it. Flawed as a movie that is flawless to you can be. Hilarious, first, and also nerve-racking. Never fully beautiful, always playing. A movie that unravels as a classical piece revisited by a modern master, always in quarter-tones and never fully pitch perfect, always finding a way. Not lost, not seeking, but moving as a rat in a maze that touches all the walls, bounces and bounces back. Like a boxer caught in his own dance, laughing at the punches. Inclusive as a keyhole opening on a red velvet room can be.
Is it watching it at 11 on a Sunday night, is it the cast, is it the angles Bertolucci finds with his mirrors and distance breaking?…

If The Dreamers focused more on the backdrop instead of this voyeuristic romance, it could have been better. However, what we got isn't that bad. On the contrary, I would say it's good.
Eva Green is amazing here, both as an actress and as...well...you know what. Her dynamic with Matthew and Theo is quite interesting.
I really appreciate this movie as an ode to cinema, to the New Wave of Goddard and also the old, silent movies of Chaplin. Some scenes were quite nice, some scenes are basically porn, and some scenes are not needed.
Above average, but I'm not quite sure what the director intended to do with this one.
A young American studying in Paris during the '68 Paris student riots strikes up a friendship with a French brother and sister.
Intense and absorbing study of an unusual three-way relationship, seemingly secluded from the outside world, but Bertolucci skillfully leaks historical, political and aesthetic issues into this complex snow globe.
Loved the movie references
I'm not much of a hardcore cinephile, so it was quite hard for me to appreciate the film as it was full of classic and new wave cinema references... but of course it wasn't all that. The Dreamers is a Utopian film set against the backdrops of a civil unrest. Eva Green was lovely as Venus de Milo.
Michael Pitt, Eva Green, numerous film refrences especially Godard, a cracking soundtrack, fantastic cinematography, really well thought out visuals, I didn't expect to like this, as I've not had too much luck with Bertolucci's work but I borderline loved this.
