Every second counts

OUT NOW! In the sombre OSLO, AUGUST 31ST, a young man struggles to overcome demons in a 24-hour long feat revisiting his past.

Having taken leave from rehab for a job interview, Anders (Danielson Lie) embarks on a 24-hour odyssey of old friends, parties, rejection and regret through the streets of the Norwegian capital, gradually observing the extent to which the city has left him behind. Anchored by Danielson Lie’s engaging and sombre performance, Oslo triumphs as a portrait of a young man’s efforts to confront an affliction that those around him seem incapable of acknowledging.

Oslo, August 31st | Directed by Joachim Trier (Norway 2011) with Anders Danielson Lie, Hans Olav Brenner, Starts April 4
