I'd also like to talk about the ending. Don't worry, I won't spoil it-- because there IS no ending. The film sets up a climactic moral dilemma for Vic Vargas (Leguizamo): should he throw the fight for more money, or legitimately fight his opponent to finally regain the respect of his friends and repair the relationships he has spent the entire film destroying? Just as he steps into the ring... roll credits. I don't know, maybe this would fly if the rest of the screenplay was written with even an ounce of originality and character depth; instead, this open-ended ending plays like a sad attempt at an artsy twist to a formula film.
The Dreamers was a very engaging movie about the human spirit, I enjoyed it the most when it was dealing about cinema, its non-chalont attitude towards the human body was semi inspiring. But its almost a movie that talks a big talk but walks very litle. Take it or leave it, it was a conversation worthy movie, and I beleive that was what the filmmakers were attempting to make.
