Consensus: A minor entry in a magnificent filmography, Me and You doesn't stand with Bertolucci's greatest works, but it's still an engaging character study.

Keith Staskiewicz
Entertainment Weekly

The movie is slight but observant and not nearly as maestro-batory as some of Bertolucci's other work.

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.

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.

The defining emotion here... is a characteristic warmth toward -- and envy of -- young people coming into bloom.

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.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

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.

The film's a treat to watch, with luxuriant camerawork by Fabio Cianchetti and a gorgeous, intimate score by Franco Piersanti.

New York Times

Lorenzo, the bratty 14-year-old protagonist of Bernardo Bertolucci's "Me and You," is the quintessence of flailing adolescent angst.

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.

This Italian drama directed by Bernardo Bertolucci, one of my favourite directors, is not a Bertolucci I know and love. Don't get me wrong, it is not a… More
