Norwegian director Joachim Trier’s film “The Worst Man in the World” captivated many spectators at the Cannes Film Festival with a penetrating portrait of a modern woman, AFP reported.
The actress in the lead role – Renate Reinsve, is almost unknown.
This is the first starring role for 33-year-old Renate Reinswe. The film shows her character Julie in different periods of her life. Passion, fidelity, motherhood, relationships with parents, differences between generations – Joachim Trier examines everything that excites Julie against the background of major contemporary topics – the place of women in society, ecology, digitalization.
According to Variety, the film, which is the fifth by 47-year-old Joachim Trier, will be a starting point for young artists, and the Daily Telegraph describes it as “magnificent”.
“She put a lot of herself into the heroine. She has a huge, huge impact on the role,” Joachim Trier said of Renate Reinswe, who is already considered a serious contender for the Best Actress award.
Renate Reinswe said she had gone through the same doubts in her life as Julie.
