Best friends Martin and Tomaz set out for a weekend together to southern Brazil that will change their relationship forever. For both of them, the brief excursion back to this coastal town where Martin’s family is from becomes a journey into themselves. Seashore is a wander through the borderlands between love and friendship, exploring sexual orientation and personal identity. The outstanding camerawork picks up on the protagonists’ complex emotional states in the same way as the soundtrack captures the roaring of the sea: gentle and powerful in equal measure. Always on an equal footing with the subject and the characters, the film creates a moment of magic and tenderness. Berlin Film Festival
“If you’re looking for a sweet and tender story about two adolescents, a contemporary story that tells what it’s like to be a teenager... this is your movie.” Travels of Adam
Martin e Tomaz passam um fim de semana imersos em um universo próprio. Alternando entre distrações corriqueiras e reflexões sobre suas vidas e sua amizade, os garotos se abrigam em uma casa de vidro, à beira de um mar frio e revolto.
