A film by Joachim Trier. In norwegan with german subtitles.
«THELMA is seductive and musical in tone and structure, with a more exploratory visual language than Joachim Trier’s earlier features that were more focused on dialogue and expressed a greater self-discipline visually. THELMA is more like his shorts, but obviously more temperate coming from his artistic maturity, experience and techniques. Zeitgeist is replaced by timelessness, chamber music by a symphony. The systematically unpredictable THELMA is the director’s most complete, lyrical and transcending film. »
– Dag Sødholdt (Excerpt from Montages.no)
Joachim Trier’s first step into the genre film area is about the title character Thelma, a young woman who moves away from her religious family on the west coast of Norway to study in Oslo. Upon meeting fellow student Anja hidden feelings surface in Thelma, and after several inexplicable seizures she realizes that she is possessed by something supernatural – that might have terrifying consequences. THELMA is a poetic piece that embraces several impulses, genres and moods and is a major step onwards for Joachim Trier as a filmmaker.
