Movie Info

Anna arrives in Italy to stay with her school friend Verena and her family in their rented villa in Tuscany. Her partner Alex was meant to accompany her, but Anna tells Verena (at the last minute) that he has to stay in London due to his work. Over the course of the film it become apparent that Anna took the holiday to get some time away from Alex, following a heavy argument. The group is split into an unspoken line between the "olds," Verena, her new husband Charlie and Verena's cousin George,

This is civilized human behavior captured with a clinical precision and accuracy.

Mostly, though, Hogg displays a welcome desire to draw on global film influences and ignore the unwritten rules of what British cinema should or should not seek to achieve, especially in the realm of films about the monied and unsympathetic.

Hogg works primarily with hypnotic, locked-down, wide-open compositions that seem, at times, to swallow up the people that inhabit them.

This is a drama that amounts to much more than the sum of its parts and, without doubt, is one of the best, and most original, British films of the year.

If Hogg can render the travails of a bunch of middle-class British holidaymakers a subject of interest, there's reason to hope she has some career in the making.

Scratchy? But why not? Scratchy sounds human. In Unrelated we almost hear the charcoal on the paper as the group portrait takes shape, filled with unknown actors helping to cross-hatch their own characters.

If Eric Rohmer were British, this is the kind of film he'd make.

However, the climactic scene - when we learn what's been bugging the sour-faced Anna all this time - proves a bit of an awkward let-down, under-written and over-acted.

Unrelated is an emotionally and sometimes wince-inducingly acute debut from British director Joanna Hogg that looks and feels and sounds like few other British films.

As if from nowhere, a first-time British film-maker has appeared with a tremendously accomplished, subtle and supremely confident feature, authorially distinctive and positively dripping with technique.

September 19, 2008 Full Review Source: Guardian

The more relaxed the chemistry, the more taboo and tense the film becomes. It's a marvellous piece of cinema that looks as if it is being crafted before your eyes.

Hogg stages some scenes with a sure sense of composition and dramatic tension but too often the film feels self-conscious and ponderous.

Well acted, superbly written drama with a strong central performance by Kathryn Worth and impressive direction by Joanna Hogg.

September 18, 2008 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Joanna Hogg's feature debut is a subtle drama addressed at the teenager still vacationing in every adult.

Audience Reviews for Unrelated

Poignant study of trying to belong but always feeling on the periphery. Set in a french getaway, the lead tries to capture the spirit of rebellious youth she never experienced but struggles to marry that with the reality of her adult maturity and its implications. Rare foray into Gallic cinema territory by an english director which feels genuine.
