Kulture 101: The Dreamers

Finally exams are over, and it was with great ease that i settled back into alternating cups of tea with afternoon naps. (yes, that's right, i'm actually an old woman).
I did however, manage to see "The Dreamers". Which, based on the book "the holy innocents" and directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, narrates the formation of what is essentially a cinephillic ménage a trois. Although explicit (definitely cringe-worthy when accompanied by parents) the cinematography, fashion and overall KULTURE is something to be appreciated.
Hollywood classics are referenced feverently, black and white scenes cut & pasted throughout and name dropping general cool-cats such as Bob Dylan, this film is pretty flyyy (bordering on pretentious). The outfits, particularly those worn by Theo and Isabelle are rife with parisien chic, it's set in paris, i did mention that right? see above for red berets and polo-necks-with-blazers, enough to make the trendies quake in their topshop clogs. Although the plot fizzles out towards a very abrubt (and slightly disorientating) ending, The Dreamers, set against the student riots in '68 is a well dressed, film buff's paradise and worth a gander.


  1. I read the book, its equally abrupt. And I love "The Dreamers, Bertolucci is a genius in my opinion.

  2. Those photos look beautiful
