Critic Reviews for Two Drifters
An overwrought weepie, it may be inspired by the recent dramas of Pedro Almodóvar, but it comes off as Almodóvar Lite -- muy lite.
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.
Director João Pedro Rodrigues has a poetic visual sense, but the novice actors remain so frozen in deer-in-headlights reaction shots, it's all but impossible to get onboard for their predicaments.
Neither sentimental nor cruel, yet touching and trenchant, the movie sustains a profound ambivalence right up to the final shot.
Audience Reviews for Two Drifters
[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]
