A pitch-perfect account of young teenager girl's coming of age one summer, amidst her parent's breaking up.
Vincent Cassel gets back his mojo (after a strangely subdued performance as a non-bad bad-boy of ballet in Black Swan).

Hit and miss coming of age drama. A young girls seemingly perfect life goes to shit when she finds out her parents marrage is falling apart and the dad is having an affair. This has great performances from Vincent Cassel and newcomer Laura Neiva but its very talky at times giving it a TV movie feel but theres some good, dramatic moments and Camilla Belle, as the girl Cassels character is having an affair with, who is the reason i rented it!

Un film bresilien d'une grande sensualite.
Sur un scenario assez classique, partage entre les premiers emois adolescents et le couple parental en perdition, Heitor Dhalia brosse un portrait emouvant et juste, mais qui manque parfois un peu de profondeur.
La photo du film est absolument sublime, completement solaire avec un magnifique jeu de lumieres autour de l'eau.
La mise en scene rend grace au couple d'acteurs principaux, Debora Bloch actrice bresilienne, et Vincent Cassel dans le role le plus mature dans lequel il a pu apparaitre a ce jour a l'ecran.

I think A deriva is more than just a coming of age story. The story is focussed on the 14 year old Filipa but centers around the lives of her parents as well. Vicent Cassel delivers a strong performance. The Brazilian beach setting is really great, makes you move there instantly.

It is supposed to charming, but it fails at bringing compelling characters. Vincent Cassel's accent and Camilla Belle's lack of charisma certainly tones down the movie.

Um dos filmes mais tocantes pra mim, infelizmente desvalorizado pelo público nacional, uma pena, já que à (C) um dos melhores filmes brasileiros que já assisti, de uma sensibilidade singular.

From Brazil comes this attempt to do "The Ice Storm" under generally warmer conditions... "Adrift" has bags of atmosphere, and it's decently performed: Neiva proves an interestingly alert, gangly presence, and only Belle, opaque beneath the best eyebrows in the business, remains a complete enigma. It's about an hour in, however, that you realise Dhalia's film has fallen in love with its own bronzed flesh tones. Lacking the moral force of Ang Lee, "Adrift" cedes to a narcissism that recalls Bruce Wagner directing an episode of "Home & Away".

Brasil y su culto a la figura!

La vida en el paraÝso no basta, desgraciadamente el lugar y las actividades son lo de menos.

Los problemas nos persiguen hasta que los enfrentamos.
Buena iluminaciˇn y fotografÝa, si no fuera por el calor, me gustarÝa vivir asÝ.

It is kind of perfect, very gentle, a little bit emotional and quite sweet like Brazilian music. It's mostly just nice observing beautiful young things living on the beach and having fun (despite the trauma of a broken home).

Family conflict in a beautiful scenario. Direction and photography save the movie.
