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.
An exuberant, exhilaratingly playful testament to being young and hungry â" for life and meaning and immortality, and for other young and restless bodies â" Reprise is a blast of unadulterated movie pleasure.
The kind of discovery that comes along only a few times a year (if we're lucky), Joachim Trier's energetic, inventive debut takes such a novel approach to well-worn themes that it makes most movies look downright lazy.
The vibrant Norwegian debut feature Reprise is one of those rare films about writers where form matches content, with fresh insights about the literary world coming via a complex, liberating series of flashbacks, ellipses, and other bold flourishes.
[Director Joachim Trier] captures, in a way that's cool and romantic and heady, the moment in life when nothing matters more than ideas, influences and the possibility of shaping one's life into a work of art.
It's a by-turns flip and searching cineaste's rites-of-passage drama -- both for the characters and the director -- that deals entertainingly with the rivalries, doubts, fears and sexual entanglements of its twentysomething milieu.
