The Dreamers Reviews

    A film about inner struggles, changes and growing up. All that with a revolution on the streets. Worth a watch.

    Speaking of how eroticism is used as a form of political fortress, I am reminded of Lou Ye's Summer Palace and the music of Le Uyen Phuong. Bernardo Bertolucci expresses similar concept with The Dreamers but his twin characters, Theo and Isabella, are not innocent, despite Mathew's insistence of otherwise - they actively remove themselves. One might think that this actually brings Theo and Isabella closer to the millennials' sense of impassive cynicism, but the frustration lies with the twins' clear literate understanding (something that millennials do not always carry). It's not that they do not know what they want, like the characters in Bertrand Bonello's Nocturama; it's that they are afraid and I do not like to think of the generations of the 1960s that way.

    If it weren't for the attractive actors, costumes, and props, it would be 100% UNWATCHABLE. As is, it is 96% UNWATCHABLE. The film was mostly shots of naked bodies engaged in unbearable conversation interspersed with black and white footage of old films that no one wants to see during the movie they are currently watching. This snorefest, as sexual as it was trying to be, lacked any climax.

    A work of art, that is rather irrelevant, and disappointing. Was it beautiful? Very.

    Compelling drama about three students in 60s Paris. Matthew falls for Isabelle and her twin brother likes to keep close to them. A story about sex, relationships and the bond between 2 twins. worth a watch

    When Stealing Beauty meet The Last Tango in Paris. It's could be the last movie of Bernardo Bertulluci.

    It was some how disturbing. But in a good way.
