Bertolucci back in Paris
- Thirty years after his Last Tango..., the Italian director returns to Paris for a film about the events of May 1968
Three decades after directing Last Tango in Paris, Oscar-winning Italian film director, Bernardo Bertolucci is back in "La Ville Lumière" for an 18 July start to his latest feature, The Dreamers. For ten weeks, Bertolucci will tell the story of student revolt of May '68 with this story that centres on the friendship between a young American and two French students who all live in the city's famed Latin Quarter.
Bertolucci cast two illustrious newcomers, André Garrel, the son of pre-eminent French director Philippe, and Eva Green with Michael Pitta as the American.
Produced by the U.K.'s Jeremy Thomas, The Dreamers is scheduled for release next year.
