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…
Why do we watch movies? There's many ways to answer that question and all can be done passionately with supporting evidence including Ethos, Pathos, and/or Logos. The Dreamers is my answer.
I have an endlessly immense personal attatchment to this film. Maybe it's my love for travel, film, France, or righteous rebelling against authorative figures; but there's something about "The Dreamers" that makes me feel warm inside.
Why? It's simply one of the most beautiful films ever made, an ode to the history of cinema and a poetic love letter to Paris. A divisive masterpiece that's both emotionally touching and endlessly fascinating in its depth. My extremely firm all time favorite.
The most important part about a movie watching experience…
i bet all rich people are like this
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…
bertolucci is a rapist pig
i want him in jail
Fucked up, maar tegelijkertijd een meesterwerk
screened from the world, molten by the soundtrack and drooling at the cast
The longer I let this sit and simmer to think about after watching, the higher I want to rate it. I think it'll stay at a 4
Esta película debería llamarse "las chichis de Eva Green" no trae nada más.
Hay algo más fuerte que el amor, el odio, las obsesiones, la tristeza, el dolor, la ira; hay algo más fuerte que las parejas, amigos, hermanos-gemelos-siameses; hay algo más fuerte que tú y que yo: la realidad. El arte intenta cambiarla, amoldarse a ella, fingir que existe independiente. Fingir. Acabaremos chocando con la realidad y nuestro mundo idealizado se hará añicos. En esto ha contribuido muy bien la forma de vida actual, ahora al menos casi nadie se preocupa de crear su mundo ideal, de intentar acercarse a él, hacen de la realidad su vida. Por eso en la realidad tan solo son extras. Sustituibles, simples. Básicos. Por eso los "raros", los "freaks" lo son. Porque su mundo ideal no…
