Me And You is modest and unhurried, at a pace with its ailing director.

An intimate, miniature and subterranean coming-of-age drama ...
June 26, 2014
With solid performances and decent drama, Me and You isn't Bernardo Bertolucci's best, but it's an engaging and enjoyable enough film from a master of the craft. What it lacks in punch, it makes up for in effort.

There's something oddly endearing about Me and You, a minor work from the master filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci.
June 24, 2014
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.
