A week that makes you reborn
21 October 2013 | by (Somewhere in the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

From one of my favourite Italian director, Bernardo Bertolucci. Everyone must appreciate his passion towards film making. While lying in a wheelchair, he accomplished the desire of his fans than trying to do for fame or break the record. After a long gap, nearly a decade later he came up with this simple but wonderful heartwarming drama about a teenager boy. It was a great comeback for the southern living legend.

'Me and you' was based on a novel which centers around 15 year-old loner, Lorenzo. To escape the associate with others he fakes his ski trip and hid in his house's basement for a week long. Soon after his half sister, Olivia, finds out who is a junkie, later she joins him. They are mismatched half siblings who never met before. During the stay they come to know each other very well leaving all the family grudges away. The first step for Lorenzo to learn to mingle with others is with his half sister and for Olivia, her half brother helps to free from the drug addict. After a week they come into the real world like a newborn butterfly from the chrysalis leaving the past behind.

It was a sweet little cast movie which most of the movie takes place in the basement. I did not get it why there's lots of dislikes of this movie. There are many things in the story to understand, you won't require a close observation to get it. I am totally surprised, is critics are that fool for not getting the movie right. Like I always say ignore the critics and decide yourself. For me it was a cute movie which made me to understand a slice of life.

Bernardo Bertolucci did all kinda experiment in his movie characters and relationship. When I saw this movie poster for the first time I thought it could be portrayal of some teenager's sexual experience like the movie 'The Reader'. But I was wrong, 'Me and you' went beyond I anticipated and became a meaningful tale of the two young people. I know the movie won't entirely satisfy for one because of a subject that won't explore in deeper, I mean in detail. But worth mentioning the performances by the lead two as well the direction of Bernardo Bertolucci Next time we hope he will make two times better than this, maybe another masterpiece.

7.5/10
