User Review
One thing is true about the movie Drift, If you don’t like drama movie’s, movie’s where emotions count, where actually the interaction between the players is as important as the storyline itself, you probably won’t appreciate this film. It’s almost the complete opposite of you’re typical all-American Hollywood Pop-corn Movie, in story, way of acting, and last but not least the taboos that are very present in the movie.

The Girl in the movie; Christel Oomen gives a complete authentic and realistic appearance in this film. I couldn’t get her out of my head for three weeks after seeing the film, you don’t think you’re looking to someone who’s acting. Maybe you can compare her at best with that girl from Leon and Starwars, Nathalie Portman. I know that she was rewarded for her role in this film at a French film festival and if i’m not mistaking even an Toronto or a Canadian film festival.

The Guy who plays her Brother, is also very good in his role, always driving to a certain existential and sexual tension between he and his little sister. Besides a nice story, about the young girl discovering her own sexuality, her brother that’s having a hard time with tough labor work, and both trying to cope with the loss of their father, the tension all players which is so visible in this movie, really gives it something extra. This is what you see so rarely in movies, and that exactly what’s make this movie, unbelievable authentic, realistic, sometimes even shocking. So anyone who haves a chance of seeing it, should really do it !
