Although it won’t hit U.S. shores until next spring, those that missed it at Cannes can catch Joachim Trier‘s Louder Than Bombs at the Toronto International Film Festival over the next week or so. Alternatively, if you live in Norway, it’ll arrive early next month and today brings the first full trailer from Trier’s homeland. His follow-up to Oslo, August 31st, which earned a spot amongst our favorites of the decade thus far, features the ensemble of Jesse Eisenberg, Gabriel Byrne, Isabelle Huppert, Devin Druid, Rachel Brosnahan, David Strathairn, and Amy Ryan.
We said in our review, “Re-uniting with Eskil Vogt, Trier has left Norway with Louder than Bombs, moving stateside and tackling subjects whose grief doesn’t need legitimization: the members of a family torn apart by the sudden death of the mother. Disappointingly, despite the more direct points of access, the film lacks the complex characterizations and trenchant observational faculties that so distinguished its predecessors.” Check out the trailer and poster below thanks to Montages.
An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death, brings her eldest son Jonah back to the family house – forcing him to spend more time with his father Gene and withdrawn younger brother Conrad than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently.
Louder Than Bombs will be released next spring in the United States
