Me and You Reviews

August 30, 2019
The film never elevates beyond a sometimes ungainly and trifling exploration of themes and relationships exhibited more daringly and memorably in other works.

Comes across as a stylish exercise in willed claustrophobia without a great deal to say.

A minor effort at best, and disappointingly lacking a sense of energy or intent, "Me And You" is Bertolucci exercising his filmmaking muscles, but not flexing them.

Mostly what's missing in Me and You, what drains it of insight and resonance, is a sense of the world outside of Lorenzo's apartment building.

An underwhelming coming-of-age fable that skirts around its own lurid undertones.

Bernardo Bertolucci's most negligible effort to date, in which he takes a familiar - for him - premise and does very little with it.

Not even Bernardo Bertolucci's choice of a lead actor with visible facial acne scars, in a welcome gesture toward authenticity, is enough to overcome the gaping hole of psychological nuance at the center of the film.

It's a tender film with great affection for these two souls; but it's also slight and formulaic, with persistent off-key notes, like the youngsters' 1970s-'80s taste in music.

Bertolucci, despite his obvious affection for Lorenzo, can't help but seem out of touch, and his hero looks and sounds less like a modern-day teen than an old man's wistful idea of one.

It's a good deal less interesting and dramatic than Home Alone.

It's fine, but we expect more from this director.
January 31, 2013
This disappointing clautrophobic melodrama, about the bond between half-siblings, recalls better initimate works by Bertolucci, but it's too conventional and familiar to merit attention.

There is certainly some promise for a return to form, but it was just too meager a project in the context of the director's earlier heavy-weight works.
