Synopsis

Norwegian psychological drama about a day in the life of a 30-something recovering drug addict struggling to find his way in life. A follow-up to Trier's 2006 film 'Reprise', the films sees Anders Danielsen Lie resuming his role as Anders, a once-promising writer from a privileged background. Now fresh out of rehab, Anders travels to Oslo for a job interview. Before the interview, he visits friends including Thomas (Hans Olav Brenner) with whom he shared a wild past, who has now settled into family life. As he revisits old haunts and acquaintances, Anders' quiet desperation grows, and thoughts of suicide are never far from his mind.
