It’s been nine years since The Dreamers, Bernardo Bertolucci’s last feature film. The Italian director of The Conformist, Last Tango in Paris, and The Last Emperor, among many other movies, turned 73 last month, and he isn’t as prolific as he once was. But if you cared for The Dreamers—a story set in 1968 Paris and revolving around an incestuous brother and sister and their new American friend—then you should probably look out for Me and You, even if some critics have called it a “minor effort.”
Like The Dreamers, this movie tells the story of a brother and sister. Also like The Dreamers, it’s based on a novel—one by Niccolò Ammaniti, whose I’m Not Scared was adapted excellently 10 years ago by Gabriele Salvatores.
No word yet on U.S. distribution for Me and You. But we’ll be keeping an eye out.
