Critic Reviews for Two Drifters

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (8)

  • An overwrought weepie, it may be inspired by the recent dramas of Pedro Almodvar, but it comes off as Almodvar Lite -- muy lite.

    September 1, 2006 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Climaxing with a union as heartfelt as it is perverse, the movie asserts with eccentric force the belief that love knows no bounds, be they physical, spiritual or sensible.

    August 25, 2006 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Neither sentimental nor cruel, yet touching and trenchant, the movie sustains a profound ambivalence right up to the final shot.

    August 19, 2006 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • I don't get it.

    July 21, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This movie doesn't have enough heart or energy to inspire wonder -- with a weak script, utterly unsympathetic characters and a nonsensical plot, it can barely keep plodding along.

    July 20, 2006 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • It's hard to say what's worse in the strange Portuguese drama Two Drifters: the insufferable wordless stretches, or the sudsy dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Two Drifters

    Like a pointless Pedro Almodovar melodrama that lacks depth or even a sense of purpose, Rodrigues's frustrating film suffers mainly from the fact that his characters are barely sketches defined solely by their constantly erratic behavior that feels completely arbitrary.

    [font=Century Gothic]In "Two Drifters", Odete(Ana Cristina De Oliveira) is a supermarket worker on rollerskates who desperately wants to have a baby with her security guard boyfriend, Alberto(Carloto Cotta). After he finds out she has gone off the pill without his knowledge, he angrily walks out of her life. So, Odete turns her attentions to another man, Pedro(Joao Carreira), who died recently in a car accident, just after he and his boyfriend, Rui(Nuno Gil), celebrated their first anniversary. And now Odete is claiming to be pregnant with Pedro's child...[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]"Two Drifters" is an unbelievable, unintentionally funny(I'll never listen to "Moon River" quite the same way again) movie about a thoroughly unlikable woman. The movie crosses the thin line from being provocative to ridiculous with gleeful abandon. There is a possibility that it could be considered to be about societal homophobia, but even that explanation does not allow for the late detour to beautiful downtown Polanskiville.[/font]
