Romance Brews in Official Trailer for 'Porto' Starring Anton Yelchin

"No, please, don't do anything differently..." Kino Lorber has unveiled an official trailer for the romantic drama Porto, about two strangers who meet randomly for an evening of intimacy in the Portuguese city of Porto. The film stars the late Anton Yelchin in one of his final roles (along with the films Rememory and Thoroughbreds) as Jake, who meets the lovely Mati, played by Lucie Lucas. The cast also includes Paulo Calatré and Françoise Lebrun. This already premiered at the San Sebastian Film Festival last year, and has played at numerous film festivals through 2016 and 2017, with a release in the Us this November. This actually reminds me a bit of Drake Doremus' intimate romance film Newness, which also had a trailer today. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Gabe Klinger's Porto, direct from YouTube: Jake (Yelchin) and Mati (Lucas) are two expats who experience a brief but intimate

Trailer For The Romantic Drama Porto, Which is One of Anton Yelchin's Final Film

A new trailer has been released for the film Proto, which is one of the final films that Anton Yelchin starred in before he passed away. Yelchin such an incredibly talented young actor who has starred in so many great movies like Hearts in Atlantis, Like Crazy, Alpha Dog, Star Trek, Green Room and more.

I think it's great that there is at least one more new movie coming out where we will get to see Yelchin perform.

In Porto, Yelchin plays an American loner named Jake who makes a connection with a French student, Mati (Lucie Lucas), in the Portuguese city of the film’s title. The official description offers us some additional details, saying:

SXSW 2017: 10 Talents Poised to Break Out At This Year’s Festival
This year’s SXSW Film Festival is currently raging in Austin, Texas, complete with a packed slate that should keep festival attendees pretty happy in between bouts of chowing down breakfast tacos and basking in the good ol’ Texas sunshine. As ever, the festival features a strong lineup of both fresh premieres and festival favorites, new and returning stars, and plenty of opportunities for talent to break out on the festival stage.

From filmmakers to actors (and, sometimes, both at the same time), familiar faces looking to try a new craft to total newbies, this year’s festival has plenty of stars on the rise to look out for (ouch, so bright).

[Lff Review] Porto

One of Anton Yelchin’s final screen performances lifts the melancholic ode to one night’s lost passion in Porto, a messy, scattered drama that, for all its visual resplendence, is too narratively slippery to reach much in the way of profundity. Set in the picturesque Portuguese city of the title, the film demonstrates first-time fiction director Gabe Klinger’s eye for visual storytelling, but his script, co-written by Larry Gross, feels undeveloped for anything further than glib, Instagram-like testaments to cherished moments in time.

Porto loops back and forwards to a single night, the meeting of Yelchin’s Jake and Lucie Lucas’ Mati for a fiery one-night stand. It’s an event that’s unnatural for both, but something urges them both through it. (“It doesn’t feel a matter of choice” says Jake about his own actions.) Real life inevitably encroaches and puts an abrupt end to their relationship,

Gabe Klinger on Shooting Porto on Multiple Film Gauges, Approaching Sex Scenes and Manoel de Oliveira’s Influence

After taking home the Best Documentary prize from the Venice Film Festival for Double Play: James Benning and Richard Linklater, critic-turned-director Gabe Klinger’s first scripted feature is the fractured, woozy love story, Porto. Set in the titular Portuguese city, it dramatizes in non-linear fashion the shared experiences of a rail-thin American nomad, Jake (Anton Yelchin, in a hypnotic parting performance), and a charming local woman, Mati (Lucie Lucas, making her feature starring debut). Porto debuted at the San Sebastián International Film Festival in late September and followed with showings at the Zurich Film Festival, where I was able to catch up with him […]

All of Time Is Just a Memory: Discussing "Porto" with Gabe Klinger

  • MUBI
Actress Lucie Lucas, director Gabe Klinger, and actor Anton YelchinYou may already know the work of Brazilian-born American Gabe Klinger, perhaps through his writing as a critic for Cinema Scope and Sight & Sound, or through his programming at such venues as the Museum of Modern Art and the International Film Festival Rotterdam. In 2013, Klinger leapt behind the camera for his delightfully idiosyncratic debut film, Double Play, a documentary twofer chatting with and exploring the work of two distinctively different yet unexpectedly compatible American filmmakers, Richard Linklater and James Benning. This move to documenting (and combining) favorite filmmakers seemed like a natural extension of Klinger's advocacy in print and work at cinematheques and film festivals. Yet rather than remaining in the documentary mode, for his follow-up Klinger has gone overseas to Portugal to make a cleverly time-addled romance that's at once elated and melancholy. Porto, taking place in a dreamy, remembered

Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

This calendar year has been filled to the brim with unthinkables. The latest terribly sad happening: The talented Russian-American actor Anton Yelchin died yesterday in a freak accident at only 27 years of age. He was crushed by his own car on its steep driveway incline.

Yelchin was best known to general audiences as Chekov in the modern Star Trek franchise but to us he'll always be Byrd Huffstodt (the sensitive brainy teen in the underappreciated cable drama Huff) or awestruck poseur Ian (from the hipster vampire greatness that was Only Lovers Left Alive), and especially Jacob from the college romance drama Like Crazy (2011). Though Like Crazy was mostly heralded at the time for Felicity Jones's work as his British girlfriend, it was Yelchin that gave the movie its lovestruck foolish soul... but nuanced emotionally astute work by male actors, especially young ones, in romantic dramas are rarely given their just critical props.
