ME AND YOU (Io e Te)
August 22, 2014 - August 28, 2014
ME AND YOU (Io e Te) Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci

ME AND YOU (Io e Te)
Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci

 

“Beautifully made… a meditation on the transformative possibilities of a relationship.”

– Stephen Holden, New York Times

 

“[Bertolucci] is still a force to be reckoned with.” – The Guardian

 

 

 

MEANDYOU-master675Bertolucci’s first Italian-language feature in 32 years follows Lorenzo, a quirky 14-year-old loner who has difficult relationships with his parents and peers. Lorenzo decides to take a break from it all by hiding out in his building’s neglected basement where for an entire week he will finally avoid all conflict and pressure to be a “normal” teenager. But an unexpected visit from Lorenzo’s older half-sister Olivia changes everything. A worldly 25-year-old beauty, her problematic and fragile state upsets Lorenzo’s total escape from reality, and their forced cohabitation in the basement’s confined space brings forth confrontation and old resentments, but also a need for affection and intimacy. A few emotional days and nights with his sister Olivia will inspire Lorenzo to see the world through new eyes. Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. Written by Niccolò Ammaniti, Umberto Contarello, Francesca Marciano and Bernardo, based on the novel “Io e Te,” by Mr. Ammaniti. Director of photography: Fabio Cianchetti. With Jacopo Olmo Antinori, Tea Falco, Sonia Bergamasco, Veronica Lazar, Tommaso Ragno and Pippo Delbono. Not Rated. In Italian, with English subtitles. Running time: 97 mins.
