The Dreamers

Critics Consensus

Though lushly atmospheric, The Dreamers doesn't engage or provoke as much as it should.

Movie Info

In May 1968, the student riots in Paris only exacerbate the isolation felt by three youths: an American exchange student named Matthew (Michael Pitt) and twins Théo (Louis Garrel) and Isabelle (Eva Green). Having bonded over their mutual love of cinema, Matthew is fascinated by the sense of intimacy shared by Isabelle and Theo, who were born conjoined. When the twins' bohemian parents go away for a month, they ask Matthew to stay at their place, and the three lose themselves in fantasy.

Audience Reviews for The Dreamers

  • Apr 20, 2016
    Dreamy, romantic and effortlessly weird, the Dreamers plays out less like a film and more like an unfinished script or a thrown away play. It's great and very cool and there's a 50% chance that you were engaged by the film enough to be blown away by its clever ending, but unfortunately I don't think they delved into the themes presented enough, instead they just teased the audience with them. It's angsty melodrama isn't anything new or refreshing. The camera-work is good if a bit boring at times.

    Although it's far from perfect, The Dreamers is edgy and fast-paced enough to work well as an enthrallingly unusual 1960s period piece and a heartfelt love letter to film.

    I love artistic films like this one, sex, passion and love is never boring.

    Wild and ambitious, The Dreamers is a Bernardo Bertolucci masterpiece that candidly declares an erotic affection for cinema with references to Breathless, Band Of Outsiders, and other classics. For cinephiles, The Dreamers is a daring and nostalgic exploration of cinema, sex, and politics with equally daring performances from the talented ménage à trois - Michael Pitt, Eva Green, and Louis Garrel. Strictly for mature audiences only.
