Some years ago I started watchin a DVD. Unfortunately I never finished the move, and I don't remember the title. It's probably made around 2000...

The movie is about a young American man who moves to Paris to study. I think it's set around 1968, the year of the student-demonstrations. He meets a French man and woman about his own age (also students?), who invites him to move in with them.

I think the man and woman may be siblings - but they may be just a couple or just house-mates. I also think the two of them are in a sexual relationship (yes, even if they're siblings).

The American man soon gets involved with the woman.

There is especially one scene I remember, where the woman is bathing in a tub, when both men enters the bathroom... or possibly she is bathing with one of the men, when the other enter.


Sounds like The Dreamers, starring Michael Pitt, Eva Green and Louis Garrel:

The Dreamers is a 2003 romantic drama film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. The screenplay is by Gilbert Adair, based on his own novel The Holy Innocents. An international co-production by companies from France, the United Kingdom, and Italy, the film tells the story of an American university student in Paris who, after meeting a peculiar brother and sister who are fellow film enthusiasts, becomes entangled in an erotic conflict. It is set against the backdrop of the 1968 Paris student riots.

Matthew (Michael Pitt) is an American exchange student who has come to Paris to study French. While at the Cinémathèque Française protesting the firing of Henri Langlois, he meets the free-spirited twins Théo (Louis Garrel) and Isabelle (Eva Green). The three bond over a shared love and knowledge of film.

  • "Romantic drama film" cough Maybe the heavily censored US version can be called that. – his May 23 '14 at 15:15
