Movie of the year for me without a second thought. Julie is an imperfect human being. She’s very indecisive, being in her late twenties and not knowing what she wants to do or who she wants to be with. I love that the script neither punishes or rewards her for her actions. The script and characters are frustrating but also respectful of her choices. I adored all three of the leads and found the directing is be very careful and beautiful. I can already tell it’ll only grow on me over the years.

Julie lives a typical post-materialist, late capitalist, individualistic life that is beset by nihilism (hence the reference to Vivre Sa Vie [12 chapter]). All her relationships are "chance" encounters. No roots, no trust, no long term commitment, thus, pure flow of desire. I see this as a symptom of our culture. We don't commit, don't sacrifice, don't believe in anyone or anything. Trier, instead of criticizing this miserable life, embellishes it and frames it as a romantic story. Bull shit :)

Television has recently bombarded viewers with the lives of single and awkward twenty-something women. Joachim Trier shows why cinema is a better venue for those stories. His natural empathy embeds audiences the profound context for Julie's choices. As a filmmaker he wonderfully breaks rules: via 12 short story chapters, fantasy sequences, and great flashbacks. It's also a fantastic movie for adults, as it makes you ponder your life path. Highly recommended. My favorite film of the year.

Utterly enchanting, highly original film manages to pack a considered study of the creep of unease that descends in one’s thirties (ahem), along side off-beat, even bizarre digressions (echoes of ANNIE HALL) on the nature of love and relationships. It is Reinsve’s show (and what a show it is), but Lie and Nordrum score strongly as the other triangle points, helping anchor the episodic story through bouts of magical realism, leading to a beautifully ambiguous (and completely satisfying) finale.

Trier’s uncanny observation of faces and stakes and desires culminates to one of the best films I’ve seen in recent memory. It understands, acutely, the inherent vulgarity of navigating all our vapid social contracts while also acknowledging and obsessing over every detail of our lives because we know just how spiritual they all actually are. In the fits and stops is still life lived abundantly. Clearly, I’ve seen the last three years of my life flashed before me whether I like it or not.

"I began to worship what had been." A breathtaking account of being an adult and feeling like shit because you change your mind from time to time. Trier weaves an incredibly honest and funny story that is rare to see but is so timeless. Both Renate Reinsve and Anders Danielsen Lie give tremendous performances.

Watched this because I thought it was a documentary about the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump. Imagine being at a party, looking over to the corner, and seeing two people smelling each other's armpits. "Hey, honey, I didn't cheat on you -- I just watched another person piss!" This film really sneaks up and hits you with a sucker punch of emotion in the final 20-30 minutes, then it drops one of the most beautiful credit songs -- Garfunkel's Waters of March.

ah shit. Joachim Trier perfectly and succinctly made a movie about my anxiety about the passage of time. the comedy, the intoxicating romance, the gut-punch sadness - it's all either layered or compartmentalized here in a way that works, when it could so easily not.

I absolutely adored The Worst Person in the World. The essence of the relationship, the value of life, the endless search, the adjustment, the non-belonging, the unfilled emptiness and the great songs. There are also two memorable sequences in the 12-episode storytelling. This film will definitely be one of those movies that I will watch over and over again. (12/09/2021 - Capitol Spectrum Cineplex)

A truly artistic movie, in all it's aspects. A thourough, truthfull and honest depection of a contemporairy view on an individual life. A movie that will keep being interesting over time, even over many decades, I expect. I hesitate about the title though, i'm affraid it's a bit off...? A bit too eager? A detail though.

It'a a bumpy and messy ride, but one that eventually leaves a lasting impact. At first, I could hardly identify with, let alone condone Julie's narcissistic, amoral demeanour, but with every passing chapter, I found myself reacting more emphatically to the various up and downs that defined her tumultuous and complex journey. A 2nd viewing will surely cement this feeling even further.

I haven't seen a better film this year, nor have I seen a better performance than Reinsve's. She grounds this really episodic and inventive film and I was entranced by every second of the film that she's in, which is about 99% of it.

People are shitting on about this, and it's certainly well made, looks great, has some very involved performances, some good music, and a handful of nice directorial flourishes. But it's also aggravating to watch, feels like we've seen similarly indecisive bitches in many other films before (some better, some worse), and there's a lack of cheeky facetiousness that's at least present in the title.

I acknowledge that the film is probably made for people around 35-45, living in the big cities and having some sort of reflection about life in general and children in particular. Therefore made pretty much for me. But that doesn't take away its impact, the perfect script and the heartbreaking performance from Lie.

sometimes a film does what it does so well, you simply cannot give a quick account of it without sounding like a douche. the feeling it leaves on you is so embracingly poignant, how could trier's technical acumen be the first thing you make a comment about -before getting to the part where you didn't want to leave the theatre and return to your own life that feels like decidedly average yet incredibly soul-crushing, all the while relating to the film until realizing that's exactly what a douche-

Negative reviews actually criticized aspects that I thought were really well done. They mentioned that we never actually learn that much about Julie’s passions or professional life—claiming that this shows a superficial engagement with the character. But I read this as emphasizing interiority and a more interesting and less fraught kind of femininity which isn’t tied to external achievement and validation. I also keep thinking about various moments of characterization that were really well done.

Speaks about life, always questioning where you go, did I study the right science, am I doing the right job, am I in the relationship of my life? Romantic movie that touches several aspects of life everyone questions. In the end she finishes a relationship with her boyfriend (comic artist) and starts another relationship with other and gets pregnant (while didn't want children). Her ex gets cancer and she decides to take a break from her last boyfriend. In the end she's losing her child.

Well being around the same age and similar difficulties, this film is both hard and beautiful to watch. It feels genuine and character development is progressively natural and intelligent, and ties the story really well together. I wasn't convinced on shroom trip and it would need more research. Overall an emotional rollercoaster about very human behavior cruising in this thing called life, with all the beauty and hardship alike. I liked it but it's also a bit of caricature-ish on times.

It may not be quite on par with Trier and Vogt's two first parts of The Oslo Trilogy but I really like that the plot doesn't move in a straight line from A to B, and Anders Danielsen Lie is as great as he's ever been.

It's engulfing from the first couple of scenes. The small, unspoken emotions are captured so well. The ups and downs, the indecision, the irony, the internal compromises. It's a bold statement, but realistic human nature has maybe never been captured so well by cinema. This movie feels like an important, existential landmark. I need to think on it some more, and revisit it soon.

Trier is giving us one of the best models for our modern condition. At times, the social adversity he is analyzing is too clearly written, but Julie's character captures the exact uncertainty that one meanders with in the struggle for commitment and purpose. Does it not say enough that a dying man simply does not want to be just a memory? An ending that portrays what reflection may come in solitude, the journey is never sought out exactly as planned.

Mundane and self-involved - not the best combo in the world. There's some slight variation on the indie relationship up and down, with Trier retreating the paths of his first two features (which also didn't have much of a story, just personal narration basically). To me, this Julie girl is not particularly interesting or bad, but if the recognition of a real, insecure person suffices, then here is some literate cinema for you. Literate, as in, not a laugh to be had.

The mushroom scene was a bit overindulgent and silly, and it does seem geared towards massaging the egos of liberal white people on the verge of middle age, but Reinsve is incredible. The soundtrack is also one of my favorites of this decade so far, so yeah I'm definitely in that target demographic.

Came in with high hopes and, perhaps unfairly, the movie did not fulfill them. There is a lot to love in Joachim Trier’s direction. No other director looks at Oslo so romantically. His playful mix of reality and form keeps it all exciting. Perhaps the problem here lies with me. Julie reminded me so much of a sort of person I do not like, which I honestly think is a testament to how good of a character she is, but it left me cold when the movie itself was not telling me anything interesting.

Trier uses all the tricks in the book: telling the story in chapters, fantasy scenes, animation, and flashbacks and stops just when it would become too much or right after it does. Still alright. Add outstanding acting to these, and you get TWPITW. For a moment there I thought it would turn into a romcom. Glad it didn't. A crisp and delicate film, leaving a taste of not sugary honey in mouth.

Yönetmen, aslında 'bilindik' mevzuları kendi perspektifinden öyle ustaca, alışılmışın dışında ve bir o kadar da hayatın tam içinden ele almış ki, filmi salt "Romantik Drama" janrından çıkarıp daha nitelikli bir hale büründürmüş. Senaryo ve oyunculuklara diyecek yok. Fakat Renate Reinsve'nin Cannes'da aldığı en iyi kadın oyuncu ödülü o kadar hak edilmiş, tartışmaya kapalı, kılçıksız bir ödül ki.. Muazzam oynamış, ne kadar övülse az kalır.

Do you cuddle your kids? Sure, a lot. They’ll be drug addicts. They’ll be addicts because I cuddle them? Yeah, according to new research. New research says you shouldn’t cuddle your kids? I realise it must be counterintuitive for a mother. But motherhood upsets your limbic system. So my kids are going to be drug addicts? That’s ridiculous. Do you have children? No, but I’m a doctor. I have a medical perspective.

Top badass moment? Anytime something bad happened to Julie. I’ve met women like her, (in fact I’ve been out with one or two) and they’re basically over-educated, self-centered, deluded sociopaths with zero emotional intelligence, who only pretend to give a shit about anyone else. It’s a shame, as the film’s otherwise top-draw material across the board, but it was never going to make me feel the least bit of sympathy for its main character. Okay, rant over. No cats, chainsaws or decapitations.

Viewed March 13, 2022. Trier's direction often becomes overly literal, the script falls back on silly gimmicks. The breakup sequence, for example, is full of annoying choices: not just the corny freeze-frame trailer moment, but also the maudlin scoring that drowns out the subtleties of Reinsve and Lie's performances (and don't get me started on "I love you. And I don't love you"). Ditto the drug trip sequence, a cliche that Trier fails to improve upon. Good soundtrack, though.

Pretty solid romcom in the first hour, not so much in the second. It's mostly a millennial angst film about this constant search for something invisible, unreachable called satisfaction -- not just plain, straightforward happiness, but actually a routine you don't end up wanting to kill yourself in the end of the day. And this quest is just sad sometimes, and angry, lonely and painful. Chapter 5 is my favorite by far -- the Oslo freezed so Julie can decide who she wants.

I know everyone found it so *deep*, but I found it so middle class and so full of cliches. And I just had this very strong feeling that Trier centers Aksel actually, instead of Julie, in the narrative. It did have some nice moments. The 'cheating' chapter actually had something interesting to say and the breakup also felt real in places.

A more realistic version of (500) Days of Summer. The movie effectively depicts the inner confusion that insecure but talented young people (not necessarily girls, I think) have. I really liked a few scenes, including the time-stop scene and the ending. Yet, it still lacked something for me to get immersed into it.
