  Great Freedom and The Worst Person in the World on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Disc double from MUBI
  Featuring rising star Franz Rogowski (Luzifer, Transit), Berlinale Silver Bear winner Georg Friedrich (Bright Nights, Wild), Anton Von Lucke (Frantz, Bad Banks) and Thomas Prenn (Why Not You, Biohackers), Sebastian Meise’s Great Freedom had its World Premiere at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, where it picked up the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize Award. A searing depiction of love in the face of injustice, the film was selected as Austria's submission for Best International Feature Film at the 2022 Academy Awards.

In post-war Germany, liberation by the Allies does not mean freedom for everyone. Hans has been found guilty for his homosexuality, deemed grounds for imprisonment under Paragraph 175. Over the course of decades, he is spied on and repeatedly jailed as a result.

As Hans returns to prison again and again, he develops an unlikely bond with his cellmate Viktor, a convicted murderer. What begins as revulsion blossoms over time into something far more tender.

The Worst Person In The World is the third film in director Joachim Trier's loose Oslo Trilogy, following Reprise (2006) and Oslo, 31 August (2011). Featuring a phenomenal, Cannes-winning and BAFTA-nominated performance from Renate Reinsve (Oslo, August 31st, The Orheim Company), Anders Danielsen Lie (Bergman Island, Reprise, 22 July) and Herbert Nordrum, the film premiered in competition at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, with Reinsve winning the award for Best Actress. The film was nominated for the Best International Feature Film and Original Screenplay at the 94th Academy Awards®, as well as being nominated for two BAFTA Awards - Film Not In The English Language, and Leading Actress (Reinsve).

The Worst Person in the World is a wistful and subversive romantic drama about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It revolves around Julie, a vibrant and impulsive young woman who, on the verge of turning thirty, is faced with a series of choices that force her to continually reinvent and pursue new perspectives on her life. Over the course of several years, Julie navigates multiple love affairs, existential uncertainty and career dissatisfaction as she slowly starts to decide what she wants to do, who she wants to be with, and ultimately who she wants to become.
