Norway picks ‘Reprise’ for Oscar

OSLO, Norway (AP) _ The light-hearted film "Reprise," about life’s realities intruding on youthful assumptions, will be Norway’s candidate for the best foreign film Oscar, the national film board announced Friday.

The film is director Joachim Trier’s first full-length feature, and won the best director and the international film societies’ Don Quixote prizes when it premiered in July at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in the Czech Republic.

"We have great confidence in this year’s candidate. It is unusual, poetic and exciting, and gets to the audience from the very first moment," said Jan Erik Holst, of the Norwegian Film Institute.

The film will compete to be one of five finalists for the Academy Award. Nominations are expected to be announced on Jan. 23. The Norwegian film board described "Reprise" as "a humorous film about friendship and madness, love and disasters, and youthful recklessness which collides with the world of harsh reality."

Earlier this week, Sweden announced that its entry would be Jesper Ganslandt’s "Falkenberg Farewell," while Denmark last week picked Susanne Bier’s "After the Wedding."
