Stylistically bold, impressive feature debut about creative youth

Reprise alternately shows punk energy, library hush and comic anxiety. And despite ominous portents, the ending is cockeyed optimistic.

Trier is having more fun in the editing room than his story requires and he'd be well advised to spend more time in the deeper development and dramatic elements of his characters.

This story about two aspiring writers in their early 20s has the fearlessness and vivacity of a first novel, and its playful approach to chronology and voice-over narration serves to amplify its themes instead of coming off as a show-off trick.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

This is that rare film where a daring style is connected to real substance, and that's an exciting thing to experience in a first-time director.

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

Although there's no romantic triangle as in Francois Truffaut's classic 1961 film Jules and Jim, it seems obvious that film was an influence here.

Reprise is an ordinary tale of post-adolescent angst that would benefit from a cleaner plot line, clearer characterizations and more intriguing situations.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

I realized the movie had lost me when it occurred to me that after spending many minutes with Phillip and Erik, I had no interest in reading any novel that either of them might have written.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... film full of wry comments and textural gestures - Trier mixes film stock and references to MTV-style jump cuts and the French New Wave (Truffaut's Jules and Jim is an obvious point of reference) to the extent that the pyrotechnics threaten to b

Its fresh opening combined with the satisfying resolution in the final 20 minutes help to compensate for a fizzling mid-section.

As auspicious -- and breathless -- a debut as Reservoir Dogs was for Tarantino.

Reprise is not just about engaging with or surviving through the creative instinct. It is that instinct.

Reprise is about negotiating the path from reckless youth to ambitious adulthood as much as it's about the craft of fiction.

[Trier] sometimes lapses into the literary clichés he aims to ridicule.

It's not exactly breaking new ground, but the material has a real ring of truth to it. However, it should be said that this Norwegian import is also a bit sullen, which means it will be an acquired taste for some audiences.

If you are young, male and dream of making a name for yourself in the arts, Reprise is about the joys and sufferings of that quest: It is a Jules and Jim for the punk-rock generation.

The highs and lows of getting one's first book published are intricately and delightfully examined in Norwegian director Joachim Trier's mature feature debut.

There's less than meets the eye to Joachim Trier's Reprise, but the loose, limber visual style gives the picture a certain panache.

Joachim Trier's brash cinematic sampling draws on diverse sources yet it spins something defiantly fresh and original.
