Provocative, thoughtful and emotionally very powerful, can also be frustrating for some, but I think that it perfectly shows what human beings are above all: imperfect and with no idea about what we are doing here.
Sometimes, the director plays with the concept of time, with some fantastic dialogues but also with cool effects and one of the biggest things I from here is that stopping the time (the moment, the year, the party, the "normal" conversations with the people you love, things we take as granted) is the most underrated superpower.
Fmovies: Well written and very well acted. Some scens do take a little too long for my liking. After a while you're like 'ok, we get it'. But apart from that, overall pretty great.
7/10: very good, but not amazing.
It's been a couple of hours since I watched this, and I'll admit, it's been hard to figure out how to give some thoughts on it through text.
I will say it resonated with me emotionally- far more than your average movie. I really felt it, y'know? Not in a way that's going to make me reshape my life or change what I'm doing day to day necessarily, but there was something to it that makes me sure it's going to stick in my brain for weeks, maybe months or even years to come.
I can't go much further than that. It's a wonderful, sometimes funny, sometimes bittersweet, sometimes soul-crushing film, and all the emotions are explored and interweaved perfectly.
There are so many great scenes... the scene where time freezes, the "what is cheating" scene, the scene in and around the hospital, the scene with the magic mushrooms... it's almost like every single chapter in the film is a highlight, and it all fits together almost perfectly.
It's a special film- the more I think about it, the better it gets, and the more it resonates. Also features some of the best acting I've seen in a while from its two leads, Renate Reinsve and Anders Danielsen Lie. They're so compelling it's almost alarming how invested you get in their characters, maybe because they begin to feel like real people, at a point. Especially in the last half-hour or so- I was blown away by how real they felt, and how easily I believed that these two characters had known each other for years.
Might be a 5/5 on a rewatch, in all honesty. Life being tough and all at the moment, I was distracted by some of my own problems while watching these fictional characters deal with theirs. But the moments of crossover were extremely cathartic, and as a film, it flows so well, and didn't feel two hours long, despite having pacing that wasn't afraid to slow down from time to time.
Well, how about that.
I actually wrote quite a lot.
Good films will do that to you.
The Worst Person in the World fmovies. This film attacks me personally. Dammit. Beautiful storytelling. Few movies can inspire both big laughs and tears within the span of a single feature without either tone feeling like either is stepping on the toes of the other. However, this manages to accomplish this feat beautifully.
... and curtailed expectations in a world of fraught distractions, shallow depths and contradictions. Which is the feeling you get after being pulled through Julie's world and the not so original way she lives it, although it starts with some ambition but just cools and tempers through attrition, wearing thin towards the end, she would drive most men around several bends.
The worse person in the world?
Don't understand the title, who exactly was the worse person in the world?
I herd this film was one of a trilogy. Maybe if I put the trilogy together that would explain who the worse person in the world is.
Unless Denmark's moral campus is that low, nothing that the main character Julie, a 30-year-old who has made it to that stereotypical crossroad a lot of turning 30s make it to, did in this movie would make her the worse person anywhere.
It is one of those movies that seems to be about a person putting too much pressure on themselves because of what society expects from them, but even from that angle nothing the main character did was all that bad.
This movie also felt long. If that makes Julie, the worse person in the world than I will have to agree with that.
Other than what I see as a misleading title the movie was actually pretty good. I actually love movies about relationships that take their course, like the 100 Days of summer or 9 songs. This is definitely up there with them.
