CANNES: With the World's Worst Man, Joachim Trier has very possibly made his best film to date. And it is more than just the capital that connects it to Reprise and Oslo, 31 August.

There was a historic buzz about the Norwegian participation in this year's film festival in Cannes. As many as two Norwegian films participated in the official program: Joachim Trier's feature film The world's worst man was selected for the main competition and The innocent by Eskil Vogt for the prestigious side program Un Certain Regard.

Vogt is also a screenwriter The world's worst man together with Trier, as he has been in all the director's feature films. Trier (and co-author Vogt) also participated in the main competition in Cannes in 2015 with Louder than bombs, which was then the first Norwegian-produced feature film in the main competition since Anja Breiens Arven in 1979. (In the meantime, however, four Norwegian short films have been selected for the main competition, including Bobbie Peers' Sniffer, who in 2006 won Norway's first Palme d'Or in this format.)

During the award ceremony, Renate Reinsve was awarded the prize for best female actress for the leading role in The world's worst man, and was one of the first Norwegian actors to win an award at the important festival.
