Ingrid, a woman contending with the loss of her vision, attempts to reconstruct the visual world as she once knew it. As she struggles with her predicament, she begins writing salacious fictional stories that slowly morph into fantasies of what her husband does when she’s not around. When real-life events seamlessly give way to Ingrid’s creations, she is able to find a means to come to terms with her disability.
Provocative and poignant, Vogt’s film won raves at Sundance where it won the World Cinema Screenwriting Award and went on to receive the Europa Cinemas Label at the Berlin International Film Festival.
Ace Norwegian scribe Eskil Vogt makes a sparkling directorial debut with an alternately tragic and playful tale of a blind authoress…. As in Reprise, which charted the loves and losses of two friends intent on becoming lit-world phenoms, Vogt here once again shows a deep-set fascination with the creative processes of writers, and how writing can serve alternately as a means of escape, vicarious experience, catharsis and self-discovery.
