2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel: Day 3 – Joachim Trier’s The Worst Person In The World

His second film in the Palme d’Or comp, Joachim Trier’s The Worst Person In The World (aka Verdens verste menneske or in French as Julie (en 12 chapitres)), his first work in 2006’s Reprise won plenty of praise which helped him land a spot in Cannes for 2011’s Un Certain Regard selected Oslo, August 31st. He first time in contention was with Louder than Bombs. Here he reunites with Anders Danielsen Lie who plays Aksel, but this is the story of the dynamic flip-flopping Renate Reinsve – an actress who had a bit role in Oslo, August 31st.
