Acclaimed filmmaker Joachim Trier returns with this surprisingly wistful and subversive romantic drama about the quest for love and meaning. Set in contemporary Oslo, it features a star-making lead performance from Renate Reinsve as a young woman who, on the verge of turning thirty, navigates multiple love affairs, existential uncertainty and career dissatisfaction as she slowly starts deciding what she wants to do, who she wants to be, and ultimately who she wants to become.
As much a formally playful character study as it is a poignant and perceptive observation of quarter-life angst, this life-affirming coming of age story, a little resonant of Annie Hall, deservedly won Reinsve the Best Actress award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
