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.
February 25, 2019
It remains remarkable that, at the grand old age of 73, Bertolucci is still making films of intelligence and guile, let alone features about teenage angst and sexual maturation.
August 21, 2018
To Bertolucci's credit, he keeps his young characters' relationship platonic while still acknowledging Lorenzo's burgeoning sexuality.
July 31, 2018
Comes across as a stylish exercise in willed claustrophobia without a great deal to say.
August 29, 2017
[Me and You] is a modest film, then, but enjoyably so.
December 3, 2014
The movie is slight but observant and not nearly as maestro-batory as some of Bertolucci's other work.
August 28, 2014
The defining emotion here... is a characteristic warmth toward -- and envy of -- young people coming into bloom.
August 23, 2014
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.
August 6, 2014
Despite Bertolucci's keen eye, Antinori's wolfish face, Falco's impressive work (watch her mischievous smile turn into a lean, hungry, vengeful stare in a bravura scene), and a few striking moments, a strong sense of going-through-the-motions persists.
July 31, 2014
The film's a treat to watch, with luxuriant camerawork by Fabio Cianchetti and a gorgeous, intimate score by Franco Piersanti.
July 17, 2014
Me and You sits on a very sharp edge for the duration as we watch this pasty and pimply-faced kid descend into self-pity.
July 17, 2014
A coming-of-age drama about a boy whose dream of being alone is shattered when his older half-sister brings him back to messy reality.
July 17, 2014
Though the setting is a retreat from the world, where not terribly much happens, within its confines Lorenzo gets an eye-opener about both human frailty and interconnectedness, courtesy of someone even more troubled than he is.
July 4, 2014
Bertolucci is indeed a master, and "Me and You" evidences numerous thematic connections to his earlier work as well as constant proof of his distinctive gifts as a stylist.
Top Critic
July 3, 2014
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.
July 3, 2014
Lorenzo, the bratty 14-year-old protagonist of Bernardo Bertolucci's "Me and You," is the quintessence of flailing adolescent angst.
July 3, 2014
An underwhelming coming-of-age fable that skirts around its own lurid undertones.
July 3, 2014
Bernardo Bertolucci's most negligible effort to date, in which he takes a familiar - for him - premise and does very little with it.
July 3, 2014
Me and You has the reflection and patience of age, and the fleet-footed energy of youth.
July 3, 2014
Bertolucci depicts Olivia's ordeal explicitly and the siblings' bonding tenderly. He makes eloquent use of the claustrophobic set.
