Sammy (Christel Oomen) is fifteen and lives with her twenty-year-old brother, Jacob (Dragan Bakema) in a desolate deprived area in the shadow of an industrial area. Dad is an alcoholic and is in an asylum and from her mother have long been nothing heard. Jacob treats Sammy as if she is his own daughter, but Sammy is growing faster than he does. This close brother/sister relationship is firmly put to a test, especially when Sammy begins to discover her sexual feelings.
The story is rather kinky, with a possessive brother and a secretly revolting sister, who comes her brother too near. She is the one who rules here. She is manipulative, she's a virus who (maybe without wanting it) is disastrous to anyone who touches her.
The interesting thing is, that although the story might be kinky, the storytelling isn't. There is an everyday tone here. You watch what happens and you somewhat doesn't think that this is really a movie, not really fiction. That's very well done and another sign of the vitality of Dutch filming right now. "Drift" is to be recommended.
