Product Description

From Academy Award®-winning director Bernardo Bertolucci (The Last Emperor, 1987), comes an erotic tale of three young film lovers brought together by their passion for movies -- and each other. When Isabelle and Theo (Eva Green, Louis Garrel) invite Matthew (Michael Pitt) to stay with them, what begins as a casual friendship ripens into a sensual voyage of discovery and desire in which nothing is off limits and anything is possible. Featuring an engaging, seductive cast, The Dreamers is a ?spellbinding, provocative feast!" (Ebert & Roeper)

Additional Features

Though The Dreamers is rife with naked flesh, the DVD extras focus more on history and politics--one featurette describes the student unrest of May 1968, which led to national strikes (at one point, 10 million workers were on strike); Gilbert Adair, who adapted the screenplay from his novel, describes the lingering smell that hung over Paris from uncollected garbage and residual tear gas. A making-of featurette is impressively in-depth, richly exploring the intersection of cinema, politics, and sex in director Bernardo Bertolucci's mind. Then the commentary track itself features three different perspectives: Bertolucci focuses on the philosophical and aesthetic underpinnings of the film, Adair discusses its relationship to his own experience in 1968 and the process of adaptation, and producer Jeremy Thomas lays out a more logistical perspective on the making of the movie. All in all, a dense and fertile exploration of the movie's development. The NC-17 cut is the version that played in theaters. --Bret Fetzer
