Drift Regizat de Helena Wittmann

Critics reviews

For more than half an hour, DRIFT consists of nothing but images of the ocean, rolling and roiling under a wide range of light . . . and shaped by the growing insistence of Nika Breithaupt’s score and sound design. The film returns to shore through one of the more astonishing transitions in recent memory, and concludes shortly after in a shot which confirms both Wittmann’s emotional acuity and formal rigor

Ce spun cinefilii?

  • pfrolph's rating of the film Drift

    Fine piece of visual poetry. Sensual soundscape and images rigorously managed.

  • Juan Soto's rating of the film Drift

    A beautiful meditation on time passing, undefined borders and friendship. And yet, a precious time for yourself.

  • josé neves's rating of the film Drift

    Kino # 6. Will an experience of film visions necessarily have repercussions on how they are made? And, obviously, seen? As for this Wittmann film, the answer can only be positive, from my point of view as a spectator, otherwise i would not be so close to Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's "Plages" in the immersive/immense hypnosis in/at the sea and Snow's "Wavelength "at the beautiful end. An unexpected essay.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Drift

    Mistaking a mesmerizing style for an aesthetic 'decision', this film uses the ocean as an 'occasion' to escape from the world and whatever problems afflict it. This abstraction though settles for shots devoid of semantic density, either in themsleves or via editing. The result is a film that is not only formally adrift but, rather, proves formulaic, which, one suspects, is precisely what its creator wished to avoid.

  • Quattro's rating of the film Drift

    What I call ambient cinema. Mesmerizing editing and sound design–I wouldn't have used any other soundtrack than the ocean itself. Beautiful credits. The urban shots were less inspired and dragged on a bit too much. Maybe a less hermetic plot and characters would've been better, because trying to figure out what was going on was quite distracting. Worth a watch if you're in the mood. I can still feel the boat rolling.

  • Thomas's rating of the film Drift

    A slow, languid journey across land with particular emphasis the sea/ocean and other bodies of water. Serving more interestingly as an ambient meditation, it could have also stood as an art installation. Drags in some sections but the choice of using natural sound sources (wind/water) keeps it grounded.

  • VincentVendetta's rating of the film Drift

    It definitely feels like the thesis film of a university student, in that it struggles to escape the shadow of its teachers; Angela Schanelec, of course, but especially Chantal Akerman and her documentary work. There's a neat little experimental film in here, where the constant waves of the ocean reflect sunlight in a soothing and fascinating way, but then why pretend to have characters and story built around it?

  • Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Drift

    I'm not saying that Helena Wittman, who directed and co-created this with actress Theresa George, should not have wasted tie making this. I'm just saying that you could recreate the whole experience, and make it better for yourself, by walking through the countryside on pleasant days and having a day at the beach with a lilo. Then we could have been saved from this endurance test.
