Christel Oomen

In this provocative melodrama from the Netherlands, Sammy (Christel Oomen) is a 15-year-old who has recently become very keenly aware of her sexual needs and her allure to men. With her parents away, Sammy and her older brother Jakob (Dragan Bakema) have to look after themselves, with Jakob bringing home the bacon (literally) working in a meat-packing plant. Sammy thinks that her brother is overly attentive and wants him out of her life; she goads him by seducing his best friend's dad, and when that isn't enough, she begins to make advances on Jakob, much to his distress. The first feature from director Michiel van Jaarsveld, Drift was shown in competition at the 2001 Rotterdam Film Festival.
