Adrift Trailer

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to feature this trailer today! Adrift is a little foreign gem I discovered at Cannes thanks to my friend Eric of IONCinema. As time has passed since that fest came to an end, this film has been prominently on my mind for many reasons, most importantly the amazing visuals, the wonderful score, and Vincent Cassel's great performance. Luckily, this trailer gives you a glimpse at all of that, even though it's in Portuguese and features French subtitles. You may not understand the dialogue, but you can certainly understand what's going on. This is a great first look that you just have to see.

Watch the international trailer for Heitor Dhalia's Adrift:

[flv: 560 314]

Spending summer with her family, Filipa, a fourteen-year old girl, suffers through the rite of passage into adulthood while discovering love for the first time. A rite filled with anguish when she learns that her father, an author, is having an affair with a foreign woman who lives nearby. But this secret is to be only the first in a series, both enchanting and painful, which she discovers about her family and herself.

Adrift, aka À Deriva in Portuguese, is both written and directed by Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia, of Nina and Drained previously. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. I gave it a 8.5 out of 10 in my review from the fest. It's currently still looking for a US distributor which I hope it finds soon!

    Father bangs young woman while on vacation and family finds out. Boring!

    Brazilian movie, people. And yes, English isnt the universal language. No, Father has a lover, it's a movie about the human behaviour. Great comment's, as always, Alex.

    ive only seen vincent cassel from la haine...loved him in that. Im curious about this one. Looks promising
  • Looks heart breaking and beautiful but as I get older I can't take these looks inside humanity; I want to get farther away. Beam me aboard the Enterprise and blow something up, preferably with a Giant Robot attached; that gets me to the movies. I just find there are enough things every day to break my spirit, do I need to seek it out? I'll break down and get this on DVD then be bummed that I did but tout it as one of the best movies ever I am sure. I bought Schindler's List special edition when it came out on DVD and my wife keeps asking me when we are going to watch it, I tell her I need to work up to it. I thought I was supposed to toughen up as I got older?
