The word 'Reprise' may mean recurrence, but Trier's fleet, joyously intellectual film comes at us like anything but a retread.

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.

Anguished and ambitious, the man-boy writers in Joachim Trier's Reprise imagine themselves into alternate lives.
May 30, 2008
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.
May 27, 2008
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.

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'.

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.
May 16, 2008

As crisp and cool as a swig of Champagne.
May 16, 2008
Trier's intent is to reproduce a sweet, hazy vision of the agony of youth. Ever so elliptically, he succeeds.
