Director Alexis Dos Santos stressed improvisation, and his scenes have a lingering emotional rawness, but the handheld camera work left me feeling as woozy as the characters appear to be.

A lovely, somewhat messy movie about lovely, messy young lives.

There's real promise in 'Unmade Beds': the photography is luminous, the direction loose but involving, the acting superb. But ultimately it's a joyless, indulgent film about joyless, indulgent people.
