Un jeune Américain à Paris pendant mai 68 qui rencontre un couple de siamois (un frère et sa soeur) au bord de l'inceste. Putain.

Férus de cinéma intello-ringard, ces **** bourgeois feraient bien la révolution eux aussi -parce que cela semble amusant- en criant "mort aux fachos", mais se comportent en vérité comme des ados attardés qui jouent à touche-pipi en citant des répliques de vieux films.

Forcément érotique, car Eva Green est de la partie (fine) et paie et trimbale ses lourds attributs... malheureusement, cela n'a rien de particulièrement joli ni émoustillant puisque la vulgarité est tutoyée d'un peu trop près à de nombreuses reprises.

Le seul intérêt potentiel étant tombé dans le caniveau, nous sommes fort dépités devant cet étalage d'imbécillités estudiantines (de gauche très vraisemblablement) aussi peu engageant que futile.

Desperation. Emptiness. Idealism. Naivity.

"The Dreamers" reflects the lives of those middle class adolescents in the late '60s who felt the need to revolt against the mainstream without really understanding what they were revolting against and what they wanted instead. "The Dreamers" reflects the disconnect between a generation of adolescents lost in bourgeois society, longing to get out but not knowing how.

Our main character is your generic intellectual who's living among people of a different culture and finds some people he connects with. He's dragged along a roller-coaster of sexual tension and alienation and enjoys every little bit of it, but in the end he realizes he's been living in a dream, he wakes up and moves on.

The symbolism is deep. The emotions are deep. I've rarely been this impressed by a movie, so all I can say is this : watch it with an open mind and let yourself go....

The main characters are a young American student who has come to France to study film... and a very unconventional brother and sister who recruit him to their offbeat lifestyle. All three are obsessed by film (as many young people were in 1968... the glory days of the avantgarde)... and also with the concept of breaking rules and societal taboos. With their parents away for the month and the flat to themselves, bets are made on film trivia and the penalties for not identifying a particular moment from a particular film become more and more shocking. Only leaving their home to watch films, the trio are basically oblivious to the growing trouble in the streets... until finally they can sit passively no more. Very intriguing concept and the acting is fine... but ultimately I thought the conclusion fell a little flat... the transition from sexual hedonism to political activism didn't really work for me... it all seemed a little abrupt and could have been explored a little deeper. Worth watching and discussing though. Expand

So disgusting and gross. I mean, I couldn't find a single idea this movies stands for. So far from the communist rebellion, all the characters could care about is their sexual discovery. What sens does all of this make ? Two hours ofSo disgusting and gross. I mean, I couldn't find a single idea this movies stands for. So far from the communist rebellion, all the characters could care about is their sexual discovery. What sens does all of this make ? Two hours of nonsense and disturbing sexual scenes. Collapse
