The Dreamers 18 rating

Paris in 1968 forms the backdrop for this romantic drama about an American student who bonds with a brother and sister over their love of cinema.

Drama 2004 115 mins

Director: Bernardo Bertolucci



It’s 1968 and Matthew, an American student, arrives in Paris. When he moves in with Theo and Isabelle, siblings with an unusually liberal relationship, the trio bond over a mutual love of cinema, discussing auteur cinema against the tumult of student protests and a world seemingly consumed by violence. Bertolucci’s loose adaptation of Gilbert Adair’s novel is a riveting, poignant and erotically charged evocation of an era and the cinema that defined it.
