Editorial Reviews

Urszula Antoniak's stunningly assured debut is touching, gentle and playful. An enigmatic beauty (Lotte Verbeek) drifts from town to town, hitching rides through the Irish countryside. She comes across an isolated cabin and strikes up an uneasy relationship with its owner (Stephen Rea). Haunted by their pasts, each has something to offer the other -- the solace of his cabin and her welcome companionship. Winner of 6 Locarno Film Festival Awards, including Best First Film and Best Actress.

NOTHING PERSONAL is one of those films you take a chance on. Stephen Rea (Martin) has never been a favorite of mine and I had never heard of Lotte Verbeek (Anne). The writer/director, Urszula Antoniak, was also unknown to me. Still, I took the chance. With a very small cast and complex but contained story, this film delivers far more than most of its opulent counterparts. A terrific but understated setup pays off in a wonderful, logical, but unexpected way. No big production values but beautifully staged and shot. Most notable is the dialogue, sparse and never "on the nose" but it reveals the story in an unconventional and engaging way. The director allows the actors to act and has encouraged terrific performances which tell her story well. I first rented NOTHING PERSONAL then bought it as a treasure. It's one I don't loan out but look forward to sharing with those who enjoy real movies.

Nothing Personal is normally the type of film I would like very much, independent, stark, deep character study, and mysterious about where the film is going. Unfortunately, the film became predictable and turned into just a very slow deliberate film that left me empty at the end.

The film opens with incredible promise. A beautiful woman is standing at a window looking outside; a large group of people are rummaging through belongings on the street, a huge pile of things. People put things in their pockets. The film cuts back to the woman at the window to reveal that she is standing in an empty apartment and she takes off her wedding band. I was absolutely 100% completely hooked at that moment. The film continued to do wonderful things - the first chapter is titled "Loneliness". The film moves along deliberately while the woman walks with a backpack in incredibly beautiful areas. Turns out this is Ireland, and the film hooked me more. The director could have spent too much time developing loneliness, instead she moved along quickly to the next chapter.

But then something happened about midway, all of a sudden what was going to happen became very predictable. I kept looking at how much time was left in the film. I could predict easily what would happen next. From the moment the woman takes her clothes off and rolls around in a beautiful bed with cloudlike white sheets, I knew exactly what was going to happen next.

And yet at the end of the film, I was left with this sad empty feeling. None of the mystery was ever solved, or even hinted at. I was disappointed beyond imagination by the last 15 minutes of this film. I didn't expect full resolution, but I expected to at least understand a little more about the characters. That never happened.

This picture was a fantastic discovery, as I'd been completely unaware of it until I was ordering all of S.Rea's movies to watch. He is wonderful in it, as is the female lead. It is a very unusual, fairly heavy, love story. I watched it 3 times in a row it was so good: the photography, the story line, the acting by both leads. I rented it from Netflix to watch, then bought it as a gift to share with friends when I found it to be such a treasure!

I have previously only rented this film, but it is the highest on my list for future purchase. This film is one of my favorites, out of many which portray the deeper intimacies and losses, about and within the human experience.

Yes, the ending, the last "whatever minutes," where the challenge of loss begins for anyone in particular, will vary wildly, implicit in my further comments.

Loss is a fundamental experience which humans evolved with some abilities to learn from, especially within (rather than simply internalizing conventionally recognized and accepted behaviors--norms), and to begin to understand and manage. However, loss can be virtually ubiquitous on some levels, but, like all deeper human experiences, is potentially an endless and bottomless, infinite experience, requiring discipline and commitment in order to effectively support one's well-being and potential further development, rebirth and growth. It is the ultimate suggestion or requirement of the need for acceptance of powerlessness, and yet also of determination to continue embarking on development and the deeper journey, the most human needs for connection, and of the particular kinds relevant to the individual's place in development, and future needs .

A most powerful and demanding experience of loss, which the film begins with, and continues to maintain with the protagonist's behavior, concludes (what the ending was about) with our woman, having risked again, preparing in a new and more directed way (for her, apparently learning) for the "future"....a bit vague, but I don't want to spoil the potential of creative interpretations.

This film addresses many of the most relevant and necessary experiences for personal, relational development, but only when the ubiquitous and potentially growth endowing experiences can be recognized for the value which they offer.

First, the IMDB review offers a view that may be helpful to look at before watching the movie if you're the type who's not into abstract interpretative paintings. Thus said, the movie starts out with a young woman giving away all of the household and personal stuff in a garage style giveaway and then sadly taking off her wedding ring. Did she kill her husband; did he just die; did he leave? Who knows. Next she leaves her home in Amsterdam to hitchhike through Ireland. The movie shows the beauty of the country in counterpoint to her anger, sadness and loneliness as she walks, hitchhikes and camps as a solitary figure in that vast landscape. Midway through she finds an isolated widower farmer who tries to, in a patiently intelligent manner, bring her back to life. I say no more except in the end does she end up as she started?
