In this tense psychological thriller, Zimin (Valery Barinov) is a private detective who specializes in surveillance; he'll keep tabs on nearly anyone for the right price, and makes a point of not asking why he's supposed to be looking into their lives. Zimin keeps himself at arms' length from the world around him, which has had a chilling effect on his marriage. Zimin is hired to bug the apartment of someone named Irina (Zoya Kaidanovskaya), who turns out to be a woman in her early fifties whose life is spinning out of control. Irina is single and desperately lonely, and she frequently begs her last boyfriend, a married man whose gone back to his wife, to give her another chance. Irina is also given to long, combative telephone conversations with her mother, and as Zimin watches her frantic emotional tirades day in and day out, he develops a keen fascination with her. In time, Zimin discovers that he's been watching the wrong Irina, and that he's supposed to be eavesdropping on an attractive woman in her twenties who is having an affair with a wealthy married man. Zimin bugs the right target's flat, but while keeping tabs on her he discovers he's too obsessed with Irina and her gradual emotional collapse to stop watching her, and finds himself spending nearly every spare moment observing her self destruction. Nichego Lichnogo (aka Nothing Personal) made its American debut at the 2007 Russian Film Week in New York Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
