Storyline

New Yorker Michael Connor attempts to find the woman who left him by making a film about her, hoping that someone (maybe you?) will recognize his ex and convince her to get back together with him. To help the viewer understand who he is and why his girlfriend left, Michael opts to re-enact his failed relationship for the camera. He hires an actress to portray his ex-girlfriend, and during the process of filming she quickly and mercilessly points out all of his mistakes, blunders and inadequacies as a boyfriend. "This Is Not a Film" is a romantic comedy about making mistakes and recognizing them in the most painful way possible--by making them over and over again. Written by Julia Wall, producer

Trivia

The title of this movie is a play on words, but it's also technically correct. This is not a film, it is a video that was shot on standard definition video at 30 frames per second giving it a very un-film like look. See more »

Michael Connor: I don't want people to think I have a foot fetish - I don't. What I have is a deep level of appreciation. I mean, I'm not one of those guys buying magazines of people in leather sucking toes!
Nadia: And yet - he works in a shoe store.

An All Around Good Movie
15 October 2004 | by (Vanleer, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Okay, it's almost the end of my fall break. I've been bored. I was scanning the DISH Network guide when I saw a movie called "This Is Not A Film". It had an interesting title so I thought I'd give it a shot. It turned out to be a very excellent movie. The movie/documentary focuses on Michael Connors or something like that. He and his friends Nichols and Lindsey are making a movie about a relationship he had with an Irish woman named Grace. Also, he gives us a behind-the-scenes look at his life and such. Basically, what he wanted to do was get the viewers of the film to tell Grace if they saw her that he was sorry or something like that. He gets his friend Nadia to play Grace and Patty (The woman he was sleeping with.) During the process, he discovers that he screwed up big time.

It was very touching. I really felt for the main character. He was such a goof. Also, Nadia's portrayal as Grace was Oscarworthy at times. (Especially during the really emotional scenes.) If you ever get the opportunity to watch this, do it. You won't be sorry. My rating: 9/10. (Nadia's costuming as Patty was a little ridiculous.)
