Nothing Personal is a 2009 Dutch/Irish drama film written and directed by Urszula Antoniak. It was presented at the Locarno International Film Festival for the international competition. It won the Golden Leopard for best debut movie and Lotte Verbeek won the Golden Leopard for best actress. The movie won four Golden Calves at the Dutch Film Festival of 2009, including that of the best film.
A young, rebellious Dutch woman (Lotte Verbeek) walks the trails of Ireland, vagabond by choice, enjoying the solitude she was looking for in the austere landscape of Connemara, in County Galway. Martin (Stephen Rea) is an older man, living a solitary life in a secluded house on a beautiful island. She is radical and uncompromising. He is wise and ironic. What connects them is solitude they both see as freedom. He proposes that she work for him in exchange for food. She agrees on one condition: there will be no exchange of personal information between them, just work. Soon the two of them become curious about each other and want both: to keep their “nothing personal” deal and to break it. Their simple life follows the cycle of days and nights, work and rest but slowly brings the two of them closer to each other. It's only a matter of time before one of them breaks the deal.
