A claustrophobic homage to Hugo with a dash of Rohmer. Mahler's Fifth plays a huge role here, and it fills Michel's tiny apartment so beautifully. This is elegiac filmmaking, sorrowful and nostalgic but also dense and spiritual. And it all works so well together, despite how you might suspect a "guy writes polemic about religion and philosophy" movie would turn out.
“The Girl From Nowhere” was never capable to achieve successfully its artistic pretensions, losing itself in devised conversations given in literate, philosophical, or nostalgic forms. Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-girl-from-nowhere-2012.html
