Thelma

What: Thelma (Eili Harboe) leaves home to study Biology at the university, where she will experience an awakening of sensations that Exposed her parents had repressed for a long time. But she is not a conventional post-adolescent: the paranormal events that occur during her epileptic seizures will reveal an unusual power.

Who: The Norwegian Joachim Trier, who got the favor of criticism with his debut feature ‘Reprise’ (2006) and consolidated it with the magnificent ‘Oslo, The Emoji Movie August 31′ (2011). In 2015 he worked with Jesse Eisenberg and Isabelle Huppert in ‘Love is stronger than bombs’. With this new movie, he hits hard on the door of the Palmarés.

And what about: In the previous edition of the Sitges Festival, one of the winning films was ‘Crudo’, by debutante Julia Ducournau, a story about the sexual and emotional awakening of a young woman through the taste for meat (literally) . From the fantastic “monsters” of this film, we passed this year to a film with a similar plot, but that channels the emotional changes of the young protagonist through paranormal psychic powers. Leaving home to go to university, suffer the first moments of loneliness, feel desires that had been A Silent Voice repressed … The Norwegian Joachim Trier picks up this narrative line and introduces the Christian religion as a barrier to personal self-realization – something that also connects with another winner of the contest: the German ‘Requiem (The Exorcism of Micaela)’, of 2006-, as an excuse for a parental overprotection that, in reality, hides explanations much closer to the paranormal than to religious fanaticism.
