Hey, my name's Ruby, I'm 15. After seeing bits and pieces of the dreamers on various occasions I was overjoyed to actually be able to sit down and watch the entire film. I've had friends describe it as one of those "artistic" french films (aka high class porn), but it goes so much further than that. Although I'm sure I only understood about half of it, I was completely blown away and greatly look forward to figuring out all the subtleties that, at 2 am, went right over my head.|
I also instantly fell in love with Eva Green and Louis Garrel. Louis is absolutely gorgeous and has a perfect nose while Eva has the most alluring, classicly beautiful body. They were a perfect pairing, however I wasn't a huge fan of Micheal Pitt. He was such a Leonardo Dicaprio type only there was something so harsh about his face in comparison to Eva and Louis'... he just didn't work aestheticly.
After seeing the movie I also looked up the director, Bertolucci, and realized that part of what seemed slightly familiar about everything was the fact that when I was younger I was pretty familiar with The Last Emperor... actually now that I think about it The Last Emperor reminds me alot of The People vs. Larry Flynt (with Courtney Love)... anyway, not the point. I really think that Bertolucci walked a very fine line between artistic erotica and fullon cheap porn, but he kept everything pretty tasteful -using nudity to help his point come across rather than just because he could. Of course I know nothing about it, but that seems as though it would be right up there with the hardest things to do as a director.
Well that ended up being alot longer than I intended it to be... I suppose I ended up rambling a bit too much. I would love to hear responses or be added, looking forward to meeting new people.
