Reprise-Movie Review 09/22/2010

Posted by Films to consider in Drama, Movies, Norwegian language film.

Reprise (Norwegian) 2008

Official Selection, Sundance and Toronto Film Festivals

Starring Espen Klouman Høiner, Anders Danielson Lie and Viktoria Winge
Directed by Joachim Trier

A pair of friends who are both aspiring authors submit their novels to publishers at the same time. Phillip Reisnes (Lie) gets published immediately and his book is wildly successful; Erik Høiaas (Høiner) gets only a pile of rejection slips. But afterward Phillip has an emotional breakdown and problems with his girlfriend Kari (Winge) escalate. As for Erik, he must find the inner confidence to keep on writing.

The film follows Phillip and Erik as they stumble their ways through changing relationships and friendships.

107 min. Rated R. Some sexual content and rough language.
