Director Joachim Trier (THELMA, LOUDER THAN BOMBS) returns with another modern twist on a classically constructed character portrait of contemporary life in Oslo. Chronicling four years in the life of Julie, THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD examines one woman’s quest for love and meaning in the modern world. Fluidly told in twelve chapters, the film features a breakout performance by Cannes Best Actress winner Renate Reinsve as she explores new professional avenues and embarks on relationships with two very different men in her search for happiness and identity. Hailed by critics and arthouse movie-lovers since its release in 2021, the film around was also honoure at this year’s Osars with nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best International Feature Film. With Anders Danielsen Lie, Herbert Nordrum.
“Blending melancholy wistfulness with unruly energy and piercing humour, it’s a down-to-earth tale of love and death, boosted by a brilliantly believable central performance and elevated by fantastical moments of hallucinogenic horror and ecstatic joy.” (Observer UK)
“A truthful, tender masterpiece about how coming of age has no age-limit — love, for others and for ourselves, is what makes every risk and loss worthwhile.” (Empire Magazine)
“The story quietly washes over you until you realize you’re drowning in waves of acute emotions.” (Vulture)
“A film so fresh and untethered to rom-com cliché it might actually reshape the idea of what movies like this can be.” (Entertainment Weekly)
