Nothing Personal

Synopsis: Alone in her empty flat, from her window Anne observes the people passing by who nervously snatch up the personal belongings and pieces of furniture she has put out on the pavement. Her final gesture of taking a ring off her finger signals she is leaving her previous life in Holland behind. She goes to Ireland, where she chooses to lead a solitary, wandering existence, striding through the austere landscapes of Connemara. During her travels, she discovers a house that is home to a hermit, Martin.

- No, do you?

Can you take me?

- Where?

- Everywhere.

No, sorry

we have kids.

I understand.

What is wrong with you ...

Stupid whore!



What's your name?

That does not give a sh*t.

It need not be rude.

You can work in the garden

in exchange for food.

I did not know what they are,

so I've left.

If desired, the plant.

These are plants ...

and that is grass.

There is not much difference.

Well, this smells a little onion.


You work well.

Want a job? I have no

help from the death of my wife ...

His story does not interest me.

The agreement was "Food for Work."

Well, let's eat.

- Come, enter.

- I prefer to eat alone.

- I'm just being polite.

- I do not.


First my food.

- At least I could say thanks.

- Why?

I worked for it.

- Where are you going?

- I just go.

Stay so good

as leave.

How do you know? You can not go.

- Why not?

- Because you're old.

Stay and work for me.

You can leave at any time.


Do not ask me questions

and I did not speak.

Well, agreed.

Only one question:

- What is your name?

- Why do you want to know why?

May be practical,

I have to call it something.

In this case simply saying "you."

Hey, you!

Not yet.

- Did you sleep well?

- From wonder.


And you?

Okay, thanks.


Would you like opera?

No questions, he said.

So you know ...

- Why? What it does

- I'm leaving.


Each time you break our agreement,

I have to sing a song.

Are you kidding?

Okay, man. Sing!


Well, I can not sing now.

before I have to prepare something.

- Basta.

- What?

Let's get to work.

First use the shovel ...

to discover the mob.

And then ...

using the hoe.

Try it.

That's fine.

The need in the kitchen.

- Thanks.

- You're welcome.

- What it does

- It's a surprise.


The spirit of the land.

Enjoy and celebrate this simple

but sophisticated Parfait ...

freshly harvested potatoes.

Served with mushrooms as a symbol

the dark, soft wood.

Are you being funny?

No, ironic.

- Thanks for the music.

- Thanks for dinner.

Bon appetit.


Wake up.

Wake up!

- You can not stay here.

- Why?

Because I Said So.

Hey, you!

I want to show something.


This will be your room.

- I can help?

- No, thanks.

- Good night.

Sorry, I can not

offer any refreshment.

I would like

watch me tonight.

I have fear of dying

in my sleep.


I broke our agreement.

Yes, you did.

Do I sing?

- I did not want to scare you.

- You did not.

You can return to your own bed.

Are you sure?

I'm fine.


- Good night.

- Good night.

I picked up a book.

Well. You can catch them

whenever you want.

Today was a beautiful day.

Yes, indeed.

Good night.

Do you want to go out?

Sure. Why not?

What do you drink?

A beer.

- Tome.

- Thanks.

- Who is it?

- No idea.

Do not you know and

pay him a beer?

Eight, nine, ten ...

eleven, twelve, thirteen ...

fourteen, fifteen, sixteen ...

seventeen, eighteen, nineteen ...

twenty ...


Hey, you!

That's me, not you!

Wait, I have to pee.

You're drunk as a Cuba.


And you're talking nonsense!

You're drunk.


"I can teach you a thing?

- Let

For you.


It is really good.

Now, make it stop.

I can not.

No matter.

for perfection.

Go ahead.

Become a breakfast for you.

Everything remains in the world of men.

The meat is delicious.

a personal question.

- Yes, I did.

I guess I have to punish me?

I can not wait.

What horoscope sign are you?

- What is that?

- Country Gothic or Psicobilly.

You're too educated,

to know what is good.


What was the question?

Mine is zero.

Who are you?


Hello, do you have an appointment?

Like I said.

- I can try?

- No.

Why not?

I do not trust you.

- No one will be here.

- Maybe I love you so.

You're not the type to do so.

- I do not know.

- Sure.

Afraid I do not!

Martin ...

Have you taken medicine today?

No one will find here.

I do not want.

Why not? You would be well.

I do not want.


Be like you.

Living in this house

alone on the island.

Nobody watches, nobody knows you.

Why not?

Talent knows when to stop.
