The Worst Person in the World - Review (Sundance Film Festival 2022)

I'm So Tired of Pretending Everything Is Okay. 5 / 5



Directed by Joachim Trier.

Chronicles four years in the life of Julie, a young woman who navigates the troubled waters of her love life and struggles to find her career path, leading her to take a realistic look at who she really is.

My favourite from 2021's London Film Festival, The Worst Person in the World is a stylish and harmonious film that looks into the innermost thoughts of Julie as she attempts to figure out her direction in life.


Joachim Trier creates his strongest work with a distinct style that turns the mundane into beautiful, heartfelt, and often amusing moments that pairs perfectly with Renate Reinsve's empathetic performance.


A film that is easy to connect to on a human level and an equal joy to watch from a technical perspective, The Worst Person in the World is a real highlight, one that I was excited to watch again and is already a strong contender for what may be the film of the year.
