Plot Summary
In May 1968, the student riots in Paris only exacerbate the isolation felt by three youths: an American exchange student named Matthew (Michael Pitt) and twins Théo (Louis Garrel) and Isabelle (Eva Green). Having bonded over their mutual love of cinema, Matthew is fascinated by the sense of intimacy shared by Isabelle and Theo, who were born conjoined. When the twins' bohemian parents go away for a month, they ask Matthew to stay at their place, and the three lose themselves in fantasy.

  • The Dreamers may go slack when you most want it to soar, but it also seduces with eroticism and resonates with ideas. show more

  • An ambitious and exciting piece of work, a movie about sex and movies made by a filmmaker who understands the power of each to set off fantasy, create addiction, incite danger and transform the spirit. show more

  • The problem is the letdown you feel when these glorious morsels (film clips and soundtrack) end, and it's back to three morose schlumps. show more
