Like a lost version of Frances Ha, Gritt stumbles around the creative environments of Oslo desperate to keep up her appearances and self-understanding as an artist – without ever having completed anything worthwhile. Until one day when she glances at her chance for putting up her magnum opus: a ritualized play on Scandinavia… or was it The West in general? The film is a scathing satire of a cliquish milieu and a ruthless critique of the creative wannabe who takes oneself far too seriously. It’s a funny, cringe, and razor-sharp portrayal of the disparity between who you are, and who you want to be.
