Editorial Reviews

From award-winning director Alfredo De Villa comes a moving and heart wrenching film centering on a beautiful and mysterious doctor (Heather Graham), a young photographer (Victor Rasuk) who becomes infatuated with her, and her patient (Dominic Chianese), a painter going blind. A sexy and suspenseful ride through the city - Adrift in Manhattan is an intricately woven, award-winning film that critics have been raving about!

Customer Reviews

Too weird for me.
Mary Ludeman
Particularly the main one, in which a Manhattan ophthalmologist surrenders her sexuality to a young man who is fascinated by photography and infatuated by her.
J Mako
Good acting, well cast.

The box says this movie is "unrated" but it should just be honest and say "Rated R for strong deviant graphic sexuality" so people who are not into that would have some idea they might want to skip this one.

The box says it is "Award Winning" but upon examination of this claim I was unable to discover what award or awards that might be.

The box says "critics have been raving" about this movie, but after watching it I am pretty sure I understand why there is no listing of any of the names of those critics.

For the most part the acting, directing and cinematography are very good and there is a sense while watching (as discussed in other reviews here) that there is a very important story being artfully woven together in an interesting and compelling way. However, by the time the telling is done, you discover that the story was not being woven, but was actually unraveling instead, as each thread of the story ends disappointingly and unsatisfyingly. I got a feeling that the moral of the story is that life has no purpose, so just give up. It is not inspiring at all, as one reviewer suggested, but instead is very, very depressing. If you are contemplating suicide and looking for a movie that will cheer you up or give you some hope, I recommend you do not watch this one.

Other reviewers have suggested that this movie reveals truths about the secret lives of disconnected people, but I hope there are not really Mothers out there who want to seduce their developmentally disabled adult children, or Mothers who have feelings of guilt over the loss of a child and who want to solve that by inviting developmentally disabled strangers to rape and otherwise hurt them.

Format: DVD
Though there have been many films of late that address the issues of the isolation of the individual in a society increasingly settling for homogeneity, few have the honesty and simplicity of presentation as Alfredo De Villa's ADRIFT IN MANHATTAN. Perhaps the reason this film works so well is that instead of dealing with the usual tropes, De Villa restricts his story to three individuals who are suffering isolation in the noise and autonomy of New York City and are thus 'adrift' in a life that seems flat and without a beacon of hope. The story De Villa weaves is one of interaction of these characters by almost serendipitous incidents, moments that change their lives - at least for a while.

Teenager Simon Colon (Victor Rasuk) lives with his overbearing mother Marta (Marlene Forte) and gets through his life almost without speaking, working in a camera shop, spending his idle hours photographing people in the park. Tommaso Pensara (Dominic Chianese) is an elderly painter and music lover who lives alone and supports himself by being the 'mail boy' in a large firm: his loneliness is heightened when he discovers he has macular degeneration and will go blind. The physician who makes his diagnosis is Dr. Rose Phipps (Heather Graham) who is grieving from the recent death of her 2-year old child and is unable to continue her marriage to literature professor Mark Phipps (William Baldwin).

These people are definitely adrift in Manhattan, in an acceptable, pass-the-time, not-too-believable, hardly compelling, but worthwhile film. The anomie of the city.

This film directed by Alfredo De Villa is an intense emotional journey told through the lives of three main characters whose lives intertwine. I found this film very real, emotionally stimulating and totally thought provoking. From the beginning I was caught up and the experience was a honest, heart wrenching experience.

All the acting here is superb. Heather Graham leads the cast in an amazing performance as a very mysterious eye doctor. Add in Victor Rasuk in a career making performance as a 20 year old photographer who becomes obsessed with her and Dominic Chianese as one of her patients who is also excellent. All the characters here are shown very realistically and their lives are troubled and multi layered. The script as well as the directing desrve high credit here. We become involved and totally invested in these peoples lives. They are introduced vaguely and as the film progresses we discover all about their lives and the complexities of the issues they are all dealing with.

This was truly one of the best films I have seen in a long time. It is very intelligent and the way all the characters lives become entwined is very believable. This film was an emotional journey I will not soon forget. ADRIFT IN MANHATTAN does not manipulate the emotions of the viewer but rather tells the stories openly and honestly and allows the viewer to feel their own emotions.

I truly don't understand the low ratings here. I highly praise this film and also highly recommend it. Give yourself the treat of a film that will treat you the viewer with intelligence and provide a truly emotional and thought provoking journey.
