R.I.P. Bernardo Bertolucci:
A 35mm Addio Maestro

“When you’re talking about Bernardo Bertolucci — the Oscar-winning Italian filmmaker who died on Monday, Nov. 26  — all roads lead to his 2003 masterpiece, THE DREAMERS.

In May 1968, the student riots in Paris only exacerbate the isolation felt by three youths: an American exchange student named Matthew (Michael Pitt) and twins Théo (Louis Garrel) and Isabelle (Eva Green). Having bonded over their mutual love of cinema, Matthew is fascinated by the sense of intimacy shared by Isabelle and Theo, who were born conjoined. When the twins’ bohemian parents go away for a month, they ask Matthew to stay at their place, and the three lose themselves in fantasy.

“THE DREAMERS is a culmination and a doorway into Bertolucci’s work. A sex-charged chamber piece. But there is also a touch of the revolutionary politics of the 1960s — it takes place during the Paris riots of 1968.” –Mick LaSalle.
