Anne leaves her previous life in Holland behind to lead a solitary, wandering existence in Ireland. During her travels, she discovers a house where hermit Martin lives. They close a deal: food in exchange of work. On one condition: no personal contact, no questions. Who will break the deal first?

Lovely Irish drama about 2 vastly different people who begin a tentative relationship w/o sharing personal information. The central character starts off extremely unlikable, but the understated beauty of the film is disarmingly beguiling.
A surprisingly intimate portrait of two lonely outsiders. Antoniak shows a lot of sensitivity regarding the use of sounds, colours, light and small gestures... and tells her story without using too much words.
Oh lovely, so lovely, I'm going to go around like Anne when I turn 30 and (more likely to be) still alone; or I'd rather live like Martin myself. I cried when I saw a pot of slowly boiled potatoes, and a small table with red gingham tablecloth, I'm in love with Daniël Bouquet. The song, even the song, Patsy Cline's 'Crazy'. The placidness and quietness of this movie make it a perfect world for me.
