The hot tip for the Best International Film Oscar and perhaps even Best Picture itself, this Norwegian film will be a fitting way to close the Festival.

A wistful and subversive romantic drama about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It revolves around Julie, a vibrant and impulsive young woman who, on the verge of turning thirty, is faced with a series of choices that force her to continually reinvent and pursue new perspectives on her life. Over the course of several years, Julie navigates multiple love affairs, existential uncertainty and career dissatisfaction as she slowly starts to decide what she wants to do, who she wants to be with, and ultimately who she wants to become.

This life-affirming coming of age story deservedly won Reinsve the Best Actress award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, and is nominated for two Academy Awards including Original Screenplay and International Feature Film, as well as two BAFTA awards including Leading Actress and Film Not in the English Language.
