The Worst Person In the World (2021)

Joachim Trier directs Renate Reinsve, Anders Danielsen Lie and Herbert Nordrum in this Norwegian romantic comedy where a restless young woman struggles to settle on the right man / career / lifestyle / path / hair colour… and that’s OK.

Insightful, well made, some neat moments. I can see how millennials might really embrace this, see their lives reflected in a way that doesn’t match their instagram feeds. But that leaves me sharing one part of the love triangle’s fate… standing abandoned, dick out and vulnerable. Wondering what’s in this for me when I really couldn’t vibe with it. The miserable last third over extends itself but speaks to me more, I just know I’m out of the loop and five years too old to fall for this. Let the young people have their fun before they too reach middle age. I’ll go watch Amelie or Singles or summink.
