  1. 70
    Neither sentimental nor cruel, yet touching and trenchant, the movie sustains a profound ambivalence right up to the final shot.
  2. 60
    If you can look past the film's inexplicably straight face, Two Drifters is an enjoyably daffy picture.
  3. Though the film contains many haunting images, the absence of a solid emotional foundation makes its increasingly preposterous story developments feel arbitrary and ultimately pointless.
  4. 40
    The setup and execution of this quietly histrionic tale of the distorting power of thwarted love are so patently ridiculous that the urge to laugh gets in the way.
  5. With a weak script, utterly unsympathetic characters and a nonsensical plot, it can barely keep plodding along.
  6. An overwrought weepie, it may be inspired by the recent dramas of Pedro Almodóvar, but it comes off as Almodóvar Lite -- muy lite.
  7. 12
    It's hard to say what's worse in the strange Portuguese drama Two Drifters: the insufferable wordless stretches, or the sudsy dialogue.
