The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★½

A story you may have seen before, but done in such a charming, stylish, unique and polished manner that it ends up being one of the best movies of the year. There’s a lot of scenes that stuck with me because of their visual poetry and a lot that stuck with me because of the concepts it explores. Through it all, the film ends up being one of the funniest of the year with many jokes that had the whole audience laughing. It hits the other end of that emotional spectrum with several touching scenes that had a lot of the audience moved to tears.

Julie (Renate Reinsve) is the kind of person who frequently takes the stance “I don’t know” and has taken an inconsistent path in life - this leads to her meandering, occasionally feeling bad about that but more often just questioning her choices. She’s constantly searching for something but doesn’t know what. The film explores many aspects of love, relationships, responsibility and fulfillment. It’s well paced and sticks the landing in the end.
