Two people, Theo (played by Louis Garrel) and Isa (played by Eva Green), a brother-sister team with a strangely intimate connection live in Paris. They befriend their American classmate Matthew (played by Michael Pitt), and invite him to stay at their apartment for a month while their parents are on vacation. The trio is so engrossed by their film studies that they act out scenes in an ongoing game of trivia, referencing classics like Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor, Godard's Bande A Part, and Frank Tashlin's The Girl Can't Help It. They challenge each other through mind games, deeply personal discussions, and sexual dares. Outside their sheltered apartment, the streets are teaming with violence leading up to the May 1968 Paris uprising. Director Bertolucci weaves clips from classic films into this artful and entertaining movie, accompanied by a hard-rock '60s soundtrack.
