Directed by Joachim Trier – Norway, France, Denmark, Sweden, 2017
Art film that pictures as the protagonist a shy province-town girl, Thelma, grown in an extremely religious family, who has just arrived at Oslo’s University. Here, she meets Anja and soon the friendship between the two turns into a much deeper feeling: however, in that moment Thelma discovers she has disturbing and uncontrollable powers, connected to a terrible secret from her past.
Thelma translates into a hallucinatory and metaphorical movie the eternal struggle between desire and repression. Fear and sensuality will make your heart beats race.
