Alexis Dos Santos' vivid, seductive second feature UNMADE BEDS is a lyrical tale of two solitary expats crossing paths in the cosmopolitan art-rock milieu of a sprawling East London squat.
Axl (Fernando Tielve) arrives in the UK to look for his long lost father and instead is adopted by the bohemian Mike and Hannah who introduce him to gigs in English pubs and free spirit living. Vera (Deborah Francois) is a Belgian heartbreaker who strikes up a charming romance with X Ray Man until a failed meeting sets her on a quest to recapture traces of time they spent together by taking polaroids. Unmade Beds is this years paean to good music, bad hangovers and lost love.
Featuring original music from Kimya Dawson, Good Shoes, Tindersticks, (We Are) Performance and many more.

A gorgeous film, great cast and a really cool soundtrack...
I loved every minute of it and I insist you watch it and love it too!!
At first, this seemed like a bleak and depressing picture of young people: of random, meaningless sex, total aimlessness in life, and grating, obnoxious music. They seemed more old and worn-out than young, more dead than alive, and it made me very sad.
But then suddenly I saw that they are exactly like me when I was their age, and if this movie had been made in the East Village of New York City in 1967 instead of London more than 40 years later, I could easily have been in it; and not one word, not one scene, not the tiniest detail would have to change. This is EXACTLY what life was like then.
The life it shows looks bleak and pointless to older generations (that's me now), but under the surface it is a life of unbelievable, matchless discovery and productivity. At the time I seemed just as lost as the kids in this movie do, but I look back on the late 1960s as the most glorious time in the history of the world, a time of unprecedented beauty, change and innovation. I trust that the generation depicted so accurately in Unmade Beds will feel the same about their own youth 40 years from now.
I especially recommend this movie to old farts like me who hate it at first: that may be because it hits closer to home than you expected it to. Let it get under your skin and see what happens.
Maybe its cus I'm watching it now with my 50 rather than 20 something head on.
A London life flopped out in squats, out to clubs and gigs, necking down pints, falling into drunken binges, falling into strange nameless bodies etc. No, this is not suitable material for a self-respecting (supposedly) mature adult to be watching!
Self indulgent slackers, insufferably young, self-indulgently immature, vainly self-absorbed - the lot of them! Grown up! (they can't - not now, that's the whole point - they're stuck with their selfish little selves for ages yet)
Watching young kids indulging in one anothers flesh is too blah for me. I fast forwarded past that.
And from about half way i started skipping the boy looking for long lost father subplot bits too.
The "Hot monkey, hot a**" song got me fast forwarding again.
"What do you feel like doing? Something I've never done before" says cute French girl. So they do the jump on a train to anywhere thing. Send them to flippin Walsall, burst their fluffy bubble i say. But, obviously, they had to end up at the romantic seaside and walk arm-in-arm across a lemony glowy sunset beach (lovely enough i must admit)
Songs on the soundtrack by Jeffrey Lewis ("Don't be upset") and Kimya Dawson ("I'm Fine") get across the idiosyncratic mood of confessional neurosis the rest of this film fails to capture (if indeed the film was trying to capture anything at all)
Empty is how I'd sum up Unmade Beds. Oh, and thrown in perfunctory. But I suppose they'll learn how to make their beds eventually.
