Lorenzo (ANTINORI), a quirky 14-year-old loner who has difficult relationships with his parents and peers, decides to take a break from it all by hiding out in his building's neglected basement. For an entire week, he will finally avoid all conflict and pressure to be a "normal" teenager. But an unexpected visit from Lorenzo's older half-sister Olivia (FALCO) changes everything. A worldly 25-year old beauty, her problematic and fragile state upsets Lorenzo's total escape from reality, and their forced cohabitation in the basement's confined space brings forth… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The defining emotion here... is a characteristic warmth toward -- and envy of -- young people coming into bloom."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Mostly what's missing in Me and You, what drains it of insight and resonance, is a sense of the world outside of Lorenzo's apartment building."
‑ Tomas Hachard, NPR
"A minor effort at best, and disappointingly lacking a sense of energy or intent, "Me And You" is Bertolucci exercising his filmmaking muscles, but not flexing them."
‑ Kevin Jagernauth, The Playlist
"A coming-of-age drama about a boy whose dream of being alone is shattered when his older half-sister brings him back to messy reality."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Me And You is modest and unhurried, at a pace with its ailing director."
‑ David Ehrlich, The Dissolve
"The film's a treat to watch, with luxuriant camerawork by Fabio Cianchetti and a gorgeous, intimate score by Franco Piersanti."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Lorenzo, the bratty 14-year-old protagonist of Bernardo Bertolucci's "Me and You," is the quintessence of flailing adolescent angst."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Despite Bertolucci's keen eye, Antinori's wolfish face, Falco's impressive work (watch her mischievous smile turn into a lean, hungry, vengeful stare in a bravura scene), and a few striking moments, a strong sense of going-through-the-motions persists."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Bertolucci is indeed a master, and "Me and You" evidences numerous thematic connections to his earlier work as well as constant proof of his distinctive gifts as a stylist."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz,
"Not even Bernardo Bertolucci's choice of a lead actor with visible facial acne scars, in a welcome gesture toward authenticity, is enough to overcome the gaping hole of psychological nuance at the center of the film."
‑ Kenji Fujishima, Slant Magazine
"Though the setting is a retreat from the world, where not terribly much happens, within its confines Lorenzo gets an eye-opener about both human frailty and interconnectedness, courtesy of someone even more troubled than he is."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"An underwhelming coming-of-age fable that skirts around its own lurid undertones."
‑ Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club
"Me and You sits on a very sharp edge for the duration as we watch this pasty and pimply-faced kid descend into self-pity."
‑ Katherine Monk,
"Bernardo Bertolucci's most negligible effort to date, in which he takes a familiar - for him - premise and does very little with it."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"With solid performances and decent drama, Me and You isn't Bernardo Bertolucci's best, but it's an engaging and enjoyable enough film from a master of the craft. What it lacks in punch, it makes up for in effort."
‑ Adam A. Donaldson, We Got This Covered
