About the Movie

Any London-set movie about young Europeans and self-discovery had better have a kick-ass soundtrack, and that for "Unmade Beds" delivers, showcasing cult bands, electro punk and 80s Italian pop including Kimya Dawson and The Tindersticks. From Manohla Dargis' New York Times review: "an elliptical narrative that makes a perfect vehicle for two characters whose uncertainties, confusions and fractured romances — there are plenty of beds, unmade and otherwise — are similarly oblique….As he does with some scenes of Axl in bed with his lovers, (writer/director Alexis) Dos Santos shoots Vera's initial encounters…as a series of disconnected images, often with the background gently blurred. What he's showing us is the intimate, exquisitely close details of discovery, what you see when your vision first narrows on another…as he tags after these bodies at rest and in motion, Mr. Dos Santos creates not just a vision of community but also a larger sense of being in the world." This indie drama is an IFC Films release.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A lovely, somewhat messy movie about lovely, messy young lives. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Has a lively, romantic spirit that recalls the playfulness and spontaneity of the French New Wave. – Justin Chang, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Despite some missteps (a parachute metaphor is particularly belabored), the film has an intoxicating quality. – Anthony Kaufman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Director Alexis Dos Santos stressed improvisation, and his scenes have a lingering emotional rawness, but the handheld camera work left me feeling as woozy as the characters appear to be. – Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010
