Director Joachim Trier (Oslo, August 31st, Thelma) returns with The Worst Person in the World, a melancholic romantic comedy about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo.
Julie (Renate Reinsve) is pushing thirty, faced with a dreaded existential cul-de-sac and the prospect of settling down with a neat and entirely predictable life. To find some meaning and purpose in her life, Julie embarks on a long and challenging twelve-chapter journey of love and enlightenment, throwing herself into new relationships and experiences. Trier’s playful filmmaking lends The Worst Person in the World a dizzying effervescence which carries the capricious protagonist through thick and thin, but the melancholic trail which runs throughout creates a refreshingly modern twist on rom-com clichés and conventions.
