Director Alexis Dos Santos stressed improvisation, and his scenes have a lingering emotional rawness, but the handheld camera work left me feeling as woozy as the characters appear to be.

There's real promise in 'Unmade Beds': the photography is luminous, the direction loose but involving, the acting superb. But ultimately it's a joyless, indulgent film about joyless, indulgent people.

Overly familiar but endearing nonetheless, this coming-of-age indie from Alexis Dos Santos is most likely to appeal to those who recognize themselves in the story's lost heroes.

The conventions of contemporary youth culture and cinema could both use a change of sheets.

Despite some missteps (a parachute metaphor is particularly belabored), the film has an intoxicating quality.

Has a lively, romantic spirit that recalls the playfulness and spontaneity of the French New Wave.
