By K. Gordon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Once again, Bertolucci explores his favorite themes of politics, the nature of individuality vs. belonging and transgressive
sex.

In 1968 Paris, as the protests that began around cinema threaten to expand and bring down the government, an odd
ménage-a-trios develops between a young American and a twin brother and sister, whose relationship is full of
borderline incest. The three form a tight circle and almost forget the world outside while dunk on booze, sexuality,
and each other. But by the end, the maelstrom outside is too powerful to simply be ignored.

This is a very good film, but for me, not quite a great one. The depths of these characters aren't explored the way
Bertolucci does in, say `The Conformist', and there are even some places where it feels like he pulls his punches
(not a director one thinks of doing so.) But the homosexual attraction between the brother and the American is
reduced to an occasional ambiguous smoldering glance. That aspect, among others, was far more explicit in the novel.

None-the-less, the film is beautifully made (some terrific editing that inserts images from other films that relate to and
comment on the story), and the acting is solid (and bold. While the sex itself isn't that much more explicit than in many
films, the amount of relaxed nudity is, and that meant these young actors had to really throw off their inhibitions to make
many scenes work.

Avoid edited versions - this film is largely about sexuality, and watering down that element waters down the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A curiously wonderful movie 15 April 2012
By Andy_atGC TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Although made rather more recently, the film harks back to 1968 Paris. Then post-de Gaulle, pre-EEC expansion and pre-Euro and facing political and student unrest, France was then very uncertain where it stood on the world political stage. It was not yet 'in amongst the big boys' which is where it sees itself today.

The male subject of the movie Matthew, an American, is in Paris on a one-year course to study the language. During the early days, he by chance encounters a student protest where he encounters an attractive young woman who has seemingly chained herself to some railings. When the protest develops such that the police retaliate against the protesters, he gets caught up in the process. The girl's brother arrives and they return to the siblings' home where their parents are about to depart on holiday. The siblings invite their guest to stay overnight when he later by chance encounters the pair sleeping side-by-side, nude or semi-nude, after their Anglo-French parents have departed (the mother is played by Anna Chancellor, 'Duckface' in Four Weddings and a Funeral).

The siblings have a major interest in classic cinema, especially American movies, and one of their games is to test the other's knowledge. Matthew shares their interest in film and he becomes part of that game which can involve a forfeit, sometimes sexual, should an answer not be known or incorrect. Needless to say, a three-way sexually-motivated relationship later develops as the sister (played by Eva Green) induces and seduces the young man into their games, all of which had been completely private between the pair and very much unknown to their parents.

Format:DVD
Without generalising, most of todays films that either try to explore sexuality and youth and liberty tend to side with the explicit, and thus the film is weak.

The Dreamers departs from this tradition. Finally we are given a truely riveting plot, that is utterly consuming, so much so, it is mouth-watering. Here, Bernardo Bertolluci hones his craft perfectly that he does the unimaginable-he gives us characters whom we actually care about. Theo (played by Louis Garell, who after the volitile Ma Mere, proves his acting ability) and his twin sister, Isa, do not have a normal relationship. They liberate themselves and taboo break, they are not phased by seeing one another naked or partaking in sexual acts. But it is a pure bond of love and nothing incestuous, although it does misleadingly form this impression at the beginning.

In steps Matthew, an American student taking in the sights and sounds of Paris, amidst the politcal back drop, that is so vivid, the film has a potent air of true period capture and revolution.

In cinema, if there is one thing i can not abide by, it is jumped up films that are pretentious drivel, pretending to be a mix of drama and erotisism. But that is where again The Dreamers again departs from tradtion. The naked flesh and sexuality explores the relationship between the three characters, in a simply breathtaking manner. Usually the audience will be on alert when the sauce appears on screen, but this film has such a natural ease that what potentially could of caused a mainstream furoure, is instead sheer provocative brilliance.

The young actors are fantastic, haunting and memorable-and what a surprise it was to see Anna Chancellor in this film, as Theo's and Isa's mother.
