We rely on our memories to tell us the story of who we are. If those memories vanish, whose stories will take their place? This is the quandary faced by Phil, a middle-aged Belgian farmhand working on a remote Scottish island who, following a stroke, suffers amnesia. Phil’s journey to recovering his memory – and the love story he’s told along the way – lies at the heart of this tender film.

Phil’s boss’s daughter, Millie, helps him acclimate back to his life, reminding him of his origins, his likes and dislikes… and the fact that he and Millie were secret lovers. Though the pair are reluctant to continue their relationship while Phil remains ill, they cannot deny their chemistry. With the gradual return of Phil’s memories, the stage is set for reignited romance. There’s just one hitch: did that romance ever exist in the first place?

NOBODY HAS TO KNOW Is a deeply endearing film that asks us to consider who we are and what we want regardless of the stories we tell – or are told. (source:
