Nobody Likes Me

The Czech directing duo behind the starkly entertaining 2016 debut I, Olga Hepnarova (read review) have been putting together their sophomore project, Nobody Likes Me. Produced by the directors along with Vojtech Fric of love.Frame, the film co-produced by France’s Guillaume de Seille of Arizona Productions, Sylvia Panakovia of Slovakia’s Arina, and Spoon in Czech Republic. I, Olga Hepnarova, based on the true story of a 22-year-old mass murderer in 1973 Prague, opened the Berlin Panorama in 2016.

Gist: Nobody Likes Me tells the story of Sara, an independent young woman who works as a secretary at an army headquarters in Prague. A loner who tends to observe the lives of others from a safe distance, her world changes when she meets Martin, a soft-faced young man she becomes enamored with. As their relationship develops, Martin shies away from intimacy, eventually revealing himself to be intersex. Undaunted by this, the relationship continues. However, she is ignorant of how the world will react to Martin when she inadvertently reveals his secret.

Release Date/Prediction: Production on Nobody Likes Me was aiming for Fall of 2018, which might be too soon for a repeat presentation at Berlin. However, the highly anticipated sophomore film could compete at this year’s Karlovy Vary or potentially Locarno depending on post-production.
