Radical times make for horny people. The Dreamers , a film infamous for its NC rating by the recently departed Bernardo Bertolucci, has the historic Paris protests of May as its radical back-drop; the general upheaval would call into question and reinvent—through a month of organizing, strikes, and debates—the whole basis of French society. The student protests, which grew to 10 million people, including workers, were sparked in part by a carnal catalyst: the demand for co-gender visitation in the dormitories so that female and male students could spend the night together. Where one calls us into the streets, the other begs us to stay in bed with our lovers. It quickly becomes apparent the demonstration is something of a play; after Matthew approaches Isabelle, she throws off her chains, which were never locked in the first place, and introduces him to her twin brother so that the fun can begin.

The Dreamers (film) - Wikipedia
The Dreamers is a romantic drama film directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. 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 triangle. It is set against the backdrop of the Paris student riots. The film makes several references to various movies of classical and French New Wave cinema, incorporating clips from films that are often imitated by the actors in particular scenes. There are two versions: an uncut NC -rated version, and an R-rated version that is about three minutes shorter. Matthew is an American exchange student who has come to Paris to study French. The three bond over a shared love of film.
