Gry-Jeanette left Norway with the dream of becoming an actress. Now, 17 rambling years later, having failed to find either fame in Hollywood or notoriety in Berlin, she's back, as Gritt. Whilst her old friends from college have established successful careers on the Oslo theater circuit, Gritt is passionate about manifesting a radical collective ritual. But nobody seems to care. When she receives yet another funding rejection, and is thrown out of her apartment, Gritt's situation becomes increasingly desperate. However, Gritt manages to get an internship at an underground theater company and secretly moves into their performance space. With the company away on tour, Gritt embarks on her mission to bury capitalism and the patriarchy. Written by Mer Film

Good description of mental instability
2 February 2021 | by MiguelAReinaSee all my reviews

It is difficult to perform a character like Gritt, her helplessness in the face of lack of empathy, her mental degradation... Brigitte Larsen does a magnificent work, with the advantage of knowing the character from the short film "Retract" (Itonje Søimer Guttormsen, 2016). There is a narrative construction of self-destruction, or rather the inability to make the right decisions. And this process is well built in the changes of format or in the more unstable style of the images at the end.
