Like a menacing dream, Joachim Trier’s Reprise is the racing yet graceful tale of self-actualization. Befitting its Norwegian setting, the film sails between moods as the main characters deal with love, depression, mental illness, ambition, and unfulfillment–all embellished by punk rock undertones. The style is distinctly French New Wave, a throwback to the movement’s originator, Jean-Luc Godard, whose filmsVivre sa vie (My Life to Live) and Bande a part (Band of Outsiders) are reminiscent.
