The Dreamers


This film is oddly haunting. I have only seen it once, several years ago and yet it has stayed with me. I often recall scenes of Paris from it. Eva Green is youthful and captivating as the strange sister of Louis Garrel who traps a young american boy (Michael Pitt) and involves him in their complex games. Dark, sinister at times and confusing, this tale will keep you on your toes.

The Dreamers (2003) is a controversial film. This Bernardo Bertolucci story will shock you at times, but the beauty of the setting and the unnerving sibling and sexual relationships it frames will intrigue you. Set in the spring of 1968, three teenagers live alone in Paris for month, bonded by their mutual love of cinema they find a way to live together.  I really recommend this film for a rainy sunday.
