Sick of Myself
The relationship between thirty-somethings Thomas and Signe, both afflicted with rather narcissistic personalities, is by no means healthy. He is an artist, she works in a café, what they have in common is that they like to be the centre of attention. As Thomas' installations become more and more famous, he even appears on the cover of a renowned magazine, Signe devises a plan that will allow her, too, to be the centre of attention again: taking pills that cause skin rashes. It works, but not enough yet and so she decides to increase the dose substantially. Soon she loses all control.
With visible pleasure, director Kristoffer Borgli takes in this black comedy the excesses of modern welfare society apart, a pampered society where everyone thinks they are entitled to everything, and where getting enough likes on social media means everything. He does so with Kristine Kujath Thorp (including Ninjababy) and Eirik Saether in the lead roles.
