The film is extraordinarily beautiful. Bertolucci is one of the great painters of the screen.

In The Dreamers, Bertolucci wants to take us back to a more revolutionary time, but mostly he ends up recalling the faded revolution of his own glory days.
More unfortunately still, the elements of the story fit poorly, like a Tucker decked out as a sexmobile.
The film's real failure is that neither the story nor the characters capture the zeitgeist that Bertolucci theoretically set out to celebrate.
The problem is the letdown you feel when these glorious morsels (film clips and soundtrack) end, and it's back to three morose schlumps.
