Rating:
R
Reprise is a critically acclaimed, 2006 Norwegian drama. 23 year-old friends Erik (Espen Klouman-H''iner) and Phillip (Anders Danielsen Lie), both aspiring writers, submit their manuscripts on the same day. Erik sees his hopes dashed by rejection letters, but Phillip's work is quickly accepted. Overnight, Phillip's life changes as he is catapulted into prominence in the Norwegian literary scene. Six months later, Erik and some friends arrive at a psychiatric hospital to bring Philip home after a long-term treatment. Erik, still trying to build his career, wants to encourage his reluctant friend to get back into writing. The only thing on Phillip's mind, however, is how he can recover his relationship with his ex-girlfriend, Kari (Victoria Winge), the love who triggered his nervous breakdown. First-time feature director Joachim Trier plays with the film's chronology, making creative use of flashbacks to show scenes from the different points of view of several young adults struggling with disillusionment.
