Movie Info

Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.

[Thelma] links supernatural horror to repressed memories, raging hormones, and fundamentalist zealotry, crafting a sexy and unsettling brain-teaser.

A beautifully modulated thriller, and it comes with a message that feels valuable-it’s not homosexuality that will bring about the devil but its repression.

At times a tad too subtle, “Thelma” is nonetheless an unnervingly effective slow-burn, and those with the patience for Trier’s patient accumulation of detail will find it pays off in unexpected ways.

… Thelma’s story sticks to your bones like a shiver, and sinks deeper for days after the credits have rolled.

Top Critic

As in his previous films, Trier remains sensitively attuned to the emotional wavelengths of young characters; as a queer campus love story, this at least has the right temperament.

A stylish, distinctively Scandinavian take on familiar horror themes.
