Dreams of Lost Time A Study of Cinephilia and Time Realism in Bertolucci’s The Dreamers Sutanya Singkhra What do people do for love? Just about anything. And we all know how easy it is to fall in love. It is probably because of the mysterious nature of an act of love that makes it somehow irresistible. This is why using a phrase as clichéd as “falling in love with love” is not so inappropriate when we talk about “cinephilia” as a love for cinema. But truly, for us cinephiles, love for the cinema is not just an act of watching movies, but rather of living them, re-enacting particular scenes or lines that have changed forever our view of everything in our lives.

Bertolucci refers to the Paris of  as a “very magical and intense period,” an era of “revolution” for young people, including him, as a film lover and filmmaker. The Dreamers is, therefore, simply a cinephilia project that Bertolucci uses to revive those glorious moments, a dream to trace back and once again experience that “lost” time.
