“A marvelously constructed personal journey, both wrenching and bittersweet”

“An intelligent and resonant work… that yields up its meanings and implications slowly.”
—The Guardian

“Quietly, profoundly, one of the most observant and sympathetic films I’ve seen.”
—Roger Ebert

A wrenching trip through Norway’s capital and into the heart of what it means to live, this adaptation of Pierre Drieu La Rochelle’s Will O’ the Wisp (the second after Louis Malle’s THE FIRE WITHIN) rightly drew praise for its masterful take on a day in the life of a recovering addict (played by Anders Danielsen Lie) as he attempts to connect with all that he left behind. In 35mm.
