Miklos … Miklos Deri

Dora … Erika Marozsan

An ultra-low-budgeter, filmed in black-and-white, “No Girl Ever Had This Effect on Me” is a promising feature debut for U.S.-trained helmer Peter Reich. Pic has something of the feeling of the French new wave or some of the recent U.S. indie no-budgeters.

Miklos, the sad-sack hero, works as a press photographer and plays guitar in a small jazz band (Reich appears as another of the musicians). He’s had a couple of relationships that came to nothing, and now he’s keen on Dora, a quiet, attractive girl who hangs around the club where he plays.

Theirs is an unremarkable relationship. The film avoids sex scenes (when they do sleep together, fully clothed, it’s because they’re tired). But there’s an honesty and freshness about Reich’s low-key approach, and his young actors are appealing and relaxed.

“No Girl,” which relies heavily on v.o. narration, is probably a bit too slight to play the fest route, but it’s likely that Reich will be heard from again.
