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…
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.
"I don't believe in God, but if I did, he would be a black, left-handed guitarist."
In an instance such as this, when I'm struggling to think of "Reasons why I like this film," instead I try and think "What have I taken away and learnt from this film?"
In the case of "The Dreamers," I learnt that love doesn't necessarily have to be black and white or conventional. To love is uncontrollable and totally unpredictable. I learnt how tiny pleasures of erratic, seemingly crazy behaviour and mischief can be the light and soul of ones life. I learnt that things that are perceived by society as "wrong" and "out of bounds" may in fact sometimes just be the way things turn out and can be completely routine for others.
I learnt that sometimes, just sometimes, we as the general public should maybe learn to open our eyes and observe, or close them and dream.
Bertolucci’s ‘The Dreamers’ wraps the story of three cinephiles in France in an enigmatic cacoon, providing in vague detail the riots erupting at the time as a backdrop for the main characters. These characters entwined in a claustrophobic apartment, dreaming of a life where they’re purely in control of society, before being intruded by the riots which break them into reality. Heavy symbolism relatable to people interested in film, sharp dialogue, with good acting from young talent supported by historical relevance intertwining themes of sex and cinema driven by the politics at the time.
this was just fantastic. wow. very artsy and very deep on many levels. political, new agey yet not, family problems such as neglect and covering up, incest, movie history, war, violence, opinions, music... I mean shoot. *Have an open mind and the wonderful world of movies will shed light on things you didn't even realize existed.
Art and sex blur together in Bertolucci's The Dreamers.
A notable, visually summative example occurs when Isabelle, playing a pop culture guessing game, appears dressed as the topless Venus de Milo. At that moment she is both sensual and a living embodiment of a piece of art, a blurred line that energizes the loose narrative of the film. For film lovers, The Dreamers is charged with a sexual energy not only because of its vivid depiction of intercourse, but from its loving admiration of cinematic history. Some scenes, like Isabelle's recreation of Jean Seberg's "New York Herald Tribune!" line from Breathless, lift framing and musical cues directly from other films, suggesting a realization of fiction in the lives of the…

Debo admitir que estaba muy entusiasmada por verla, me la habían recomendado mucho y la tenía como una must see en mi lista de películas para ver en el verano. Último día de vacaciones y me dije "A la verga, la voy a ver."
Fue una suerte que decidiera verla en la comodidad de mi cuarto, sola a las 11 de la noche o de otra manera la experiencia hubiera sido un tanto incómoda.

i feel upset when i think about this movie
Vaya debut el de Eva Green. Y Roger Ebert le dio cuatro estrellas.
"I don't wanna be loved 'very much', I want to be loved"
This film is a quite weird profound emotional experience. I don't think I've seen anything like it. A portrait of the ignorance of lust that also serves as a tribute to classic films. Also the acting is so so great.
Beautiful. If I could describe this film in one word, I'd say it's Beautiful. A love letter to film, france, and just life. I absolutely adore it and the feelings it gives me. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
When I first watched this film I was 14, now I'm about to turn 18. I had no real knowledge in sex or politics whatsoever. It looked somehow magical to me: all of this posh lifestyle, careless sexual life, twisted love and the idea of revolution. I've been in love with the idea of this film for almost four years, but I've grown up and things change. It lost that spark, I am no longer that fascinated by the characters nor their lifestyle, which now look pretty sad to me. What made me love this film in the first place is now what I despise: being alienated from the real world and its problems, the sick love and jealousy between…
