Movie Info

Betrayal tears at a handful of people who share a painful secret in this drama from writer and director Màris Martinsons. In the Lithuanian city of Vilnius, Ben (Kostas Smoriginas) is an alcoholic business executive whose wife Nora (Dalia Micheleviciute) has left him, having lost a limb thanks to an accident he caused. Nora was involved in Ben's business, but since the end of their marriage, she's been replaced by Laima (Daiva Tamosiunaite-Budre), who has also become his mistress. Nora wanted children while she was with Ben that he wasn't able to give her, and now that she's single she's adopted a young boy named Paul (Gelmis Naujikas). But Paul has a story of his own; his birth mother Valda (Valda Bickute) has relocated to Ireland in hopes of putting her shattered life back together, but as she confronts a priest (Andrius Mamontovas) about the broken pledge that helped tear her family apart, he shares with her the painful truth that links the players in this tragic story. Nereikalingi Zmones (aka Loss) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Montreal World Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Loss (Nereikalingi zmones)

Probably the best Lithuanian film that's out there. Loved the eerie music and the bleak scenery that added to the dramatic setting. The story line kept me engaged as I was trying to piece the puzzles between the characters. The ending was truly magnificent. If you've seen The Prestige by Christopher Nolan, you'll know what I'm talking about.
