The Dreamers

The Dreamers Legendary director Bernardo Bertolucci (“1900”) crafts a return to social revolt in the form of sexual pursuits by a trio of late ‘60s teenaged students in this engaging yet insufficient movie. Matthew (Michael Pitt) is a shy American cinema buff studying at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris when he’s invited by new his friends Theo and Isabelle, a brother and sister duo, to stay with them while their parents are away. Theo (Louis Garrel) and Isabelle (Eva Green) are shameless in their nude house habits that border on incestuous when they corner Matthew into a sexual relationship with Isabelle. Inspired by the movies they’ve seen the three friends relive their favorite movie moments until outside pressures of student riots pull them out of their shell and into an uncertain swirl of revolution.  
Rated NC-17. 130 mins. (B) (Three Stars)
