Nobody Loves Me (Doris Dörrie)

Rating: 3.5

Not even remotely as depressing as its title and German origin might 
suggest (if there are great German comedies, they don't get U.S. 
distribution), NOBODY LOVES ME is the kind of funny, poignant, insightful, 
personal film that I'd like to make someday myself.  1995, like most 
years, has been a terrible year for actresses, but Maria Schrader will 
certainly be among my own nominees for best performance in a leading role; 
she portrays basic human loneliness and insecurity in a manner seldom 
realized onscreen. Doris Dörrie's direction is as confident and 
impressive as her first-rate script.  Some of the comedy is a bit clumsy, 
but who cares?
