From Okia Cinema:

When Bertoluci talked about dreams, that immediately became an unforgettable world of temptation – obsession, and of course, sparked every desire…

When Michael Pitt, Eva Green and Louis Garrel decided to devote their youth to their roles in The Dreamers, the result is a movie that was sexual and provocative from beginning to end.

Released in 2003, The Dreamers by Bernando Bertoluci, the king of world cinema, promptly became the most provoking, most daring, most sought-after, most wanted, and also most criticized movie…

The criticism focused on amorality, incest love, paranoia on a free world… was blasted on news and tabloids. Eva Green’s fully nude body was a bombshell appearing all across web forums. Never in their dreams could Eva been so sweet and wild!

3 young bodies intertwined in the little Parisian apartment admist the chaotic years. Trying to find a way to forget the past, using desire and dreams to fulfill… intertwined and at the same time fighting the burning attraction… All created a breath-taking sensual atmosphere for The Dreamers.

The movie is filled with symbolic scenes on sex, vivid and undisclosed. Beautiful and wild. Sex and the young bodies of the characters became tempting and desirable.

A movie appeared in every well-known film festivals, received numerous awards yet no high-regarded ones. To this day, this may be one of a few movies with no prestigious award yet found its place among the best films of all time.

The Dreamers is also the starter for a 18+ movie series soon to by screened at Okia Cinema. One for each month.

This week, check your birth certificate again because if you’re not yet 18… You should absolutely not go through this 115-minute long provocative and sensual movie!

Absolutely not!

Also, this movie is not recommended for people with hypertension or heart diseases.

(We’re totally serious).
