The Dreamers Reviews

Cole Smithey

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.

City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

Despite the movie's well-earned NC-17, Bertolucci's own ménage à trois favors cinephilia over the related pleasures of politics and sex.

Observer [UK]

It's an amusing, sophisticated movie, true to its times, cheerfully erotic, and played with unselfconscious conviction by its three young actors.

The film is at once a celebration of the sexual revolution and a celebration of cinema as the secular equivalent of religion, at a time when movies really mattered.

Fans of film and gorgeous naked people of either sex will find much here to interest them. But it also has moments that make you want to throw stones.

The venue for Pitt's marvelous coming-out performance.

It's a hot sequence that nudges the boundary of taste, but still manages to come off more as art than porn.

Maclean's Magazine

The Dreamers is a richly imagined, boldly acted ode to the delirium of a generation that didn't know it was dreaming.

Nick's Flick Picks

Maybe the worst thing Bertolucci has done is make a good film that is too blithe to distance itself from the offensively precious one it constantly threatens to be.

Only time will tell if The Dreamers is a great film. I think it is at the least a very good one.

Bertolucci and Adair have made a beguiling tribute to the glorious indeterminacy of youth.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

For all its multi-layered sexuality, the film's bottom line is all about the destruction of the characters' dreams when those dreams are touched by reality.

The Dreamers is about three people dropping out of the world for a while, even as they imagine themselves an integral part of it.
