The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★½

Assessing or comprehending the phase of adulthood depicts the process that is both chaotic and liberating, and exploring that period through the eyes of an enthusiastic, yet uncertain and circumspect millennial, Julie is kinda complex and eccentric, but also feels echt upto a level that we can relate easily. Honestly, we, all are frivolous in life at times, struggling to make a decision, whether it's one's choice or some sort of pressure, especially when you on the verge of actual maturity. Actually, life doesn't go as planned all the time, but contending for self-realization is important; even though it sounds egotistical, that's the most upright thing people can do for themselves.

It feels like the story context is not something ingenious, but Joachim Trier's "The Worst Person In The World" breathes a revivifying air of life, provides the creative elegance in its fascinating screenplay to sketch an emotionally and thematically vibrant romedy. Magnificently written, acted and directed, this film actually captures boisterous nature and cultural embellishment of youth society that addresses the topics of mortality, sex, social quandary, relationship, career and self-esteem in its radical way.

Elevated by Reinvse's graceful, Anders' heartfelt performances and the efficacious chemistry between them, Trier's affecting, passionate and amusing romantic dramedy subverts the traditions of its genre with the help of such plain sailing transitions and highly stylized direction. Not flawless, but definitely inventive in terms of unveiling the storyline, this film properly keeps the symmetry between its sardonic humour and emotional resonance, and in return, encapsulates the depth, fondness, loss and love adroitly.

There's a saying that life is not just the passing of time, life is the collection of experiences and their intensity, and Trier's "The Worst Person In The World" is probably the most genuine illustration that purveys that irresistible, restorative factor the viewers want. It carries that lively, empathetic tone throughout the runtime, while portraying an intimate character study shaped by both critiques and sentiments equally.

My sincere gratitude to Trier, Reinvase and the whole team for making this so recountable and unfeigned. Honestly "The Worst Person of the World" seems like the perfect culmination of Trier's all works, while it keeps reminiscing the sensibility of both "Oslo, 31st August" and "Reprise", and conveying the influence of French New Wave. All in all, it's a radiant portrait that finds the soothing comfort in one's own discomfiting environs, and the millennial uncertainties it brings forward.
