No matter how many mirrors he uses to fracture his characters into meaningful multiple images or how many shots he includes of out-of-control falling, [Bertolucci] can't make the naughty innocence compelling.
The Dreamers devolves into a nostalgia trip for 1970s cinema intellectuals; for them, it pays dividends. Others might do better to check out the films--like Bertolucci's own Last Tango in Paris, The Conformist and 1900.
Its nostalgia and narcissism are ultimately two versions of the same thing, and neither can reopen cross-cultural channels. Instead they keep this story stuck in the past, frozen and intact and irrelevant.
