Me And You

3

After a nine-year gap Bernardo Bertolucci is back. Is it worth the wait?

Bernardo Bertolucci's place in film history is secure, which makes this limp return after nine years away all the more disappointing. 

A boy andhis half-sister retreat to their mother’s building’s basement to be in an art-house movie together, and we’re granted the empty story of her kicking smack and him reconciling himself to the world. 

Bertolucci’s a master, so he shoots the limited locations with total professionalism and goads great performances from his leads. 

But it feels inessential: when oneof cinema’s giants can only draw a “So what?”, something’s gone wrong. 

Extras run only to an admittedly thorough doc and trailer.
