Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The jagged energy of this film's opening and closing moments leave you wondering where it might have gone and what it might have been.
| Original Score: C
The word 'Reprise' may mean recurrence, but Trier's fleet, joyously intellectual film comes at us like anything but a retread.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Drawing inspiration from the young-artists-in-angst tales of Godard, Truffaut and the French new wave, Joachim Trier's Reprise is both a charming homage and a vibrant work in its own right.
| Original Score: 3/4
Anguished and ambitious, the man-boy writers in Joachim Trier's Reprise imagine themselves into alternate lives.
The movie is enjoyable for its flashy surfaces--the witty editing, the narrative forecasting, the droll omniscient voice-over--but as drama it seems superficial.
Reprise director Joachim Trier uses flashback and fantasy sequences to develop character. He has created an honest accountability to those going through their early 20s or those who remember it.
| Original Score: 4/5
Told in the subjunctive, this psuedo-existential hogwash, with two protagonists I didn't give a fig about, gives a new meaning to the word 'slow'.
| Original Score: 3/10
Reprise has a smart and knowing script and will compel audiences to reflect on themselves at that age.
It's an invigorating brew of dynamic visuals, quicksilver emotions, playful storytelling and chic, good-looking actors.
Reprise, a vibrant new Norwegian film, burns with the passions of literature and youth.
The cinema is an ideal medium for considering characters like those in "Reprise," but you'd have to see Jules and Jim to find out why.
| Original Score: 2/4
A kinetic delight, Reprise comes from director Joachim Trier, born in Denmark but raised in Oslo, Norway, and it's a highlight of the filmgoing year so far.
| Original Score: 4/4
The personal nature of such a film begets the feeling of ownership, especially for the twentysomethings out there. It's about revolting from everything, even revolution.
They really get the young writers and that enthusiasm, but then also that heartbreak.
Charming, clever and well made, Norway's Reprise employs just the right kind of meta.
An intelligent and occasionally profound portrait of a pair of artists as young men.
As crisp and cool as a swig of Champagne.
Trier's intent is to reproduce a sweet, hazy vision of the agony of youth. Ever so elliptically, he succeeds.
[A] hilarious, smart and heartbreaking coming-of-age drama.
It's a fine film by any standard, on any scale.
