The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★★

i know it can be quite reductive to compare this to sally rooney but, as a rooney enthusiast, i cannot overlook how much this could easily be a rooney-fied frances ha. the characterization and narrative specifically share those qualities that bring on the comparisons: a somewhat ambitious, emotionally complicated (debatably unlikable) female protagonist, the complicated relationships & the sheer audacity brought on by youth.

everything about the depth that went in aksel & julie’s relationship and the brazenness of eivind & julie’s connection… i’m left speechless. there has been an oversaturation of ‘unlikable’ female characters like julie over the past few years but her story is one that really understands the facets of this particular character. i really love this. i think if i could be soulmates with any films, i am 100% sure this is mine.
