Movie poster of the weekOctober 25, 2007
Reprise is a wonderful Norwegian film (the debut of director Joachim Trier) that played Sundance and New Directors/New Films this year but has yet to find an American distributor despite a rave from Manohla Dargis in the Times. The story of two aspiring writers, friends since childhood, who mail off their first manuscripts on the same day and whose lives then careen off in very different directions, Reprise is playful, thoughtful, romantic and intellectual in a way I haven’t seen since (at the risk of repeating myself) Desplechin’s My Sex Life. It may also be the first Norwegian feature I’ve ever seen. The film has been released in the UK, from whence comes this superb poster designed by the same people who did the Control campaign. Let’s hope you get to see it here.
