No Small Affair is a 1984 comedy drama film directed by Jerry Schatzberg. It was known to be Jennifer Tilly's acting debut.


The 16 years old amateur photographer Charles accidentally takes a photo of Laura - and falls in love with her, when he develops the picture. He finds out that she works as singer in a bar, but is about to be thrown out. Although rejected at first by the 22-year-old, he wants to help her and starts an ad campaign behind her back... with unexpected results.

This film has become a cult favorite for aspiring photographers - the film has depicted the traditional film camera elements (e.g. the darkroom) unlike the modern-day digital camera where the darkroom has become obsolete. One scene in the film depicts the effects of photographer's withdrawal where a photographer's client terminates a relationship because of a wrongful deed (especially the scene where Charles flashes $6,000 for billboard advertising on taxicabs).
