She just did what! Attention-seeking Signe will do anything to keep the focus on herself, in this widely demented comedy.

On the surface, Signe and Thomas look like an Insta-perfect couple, but their constant petty one-upmanship points to something deeply toxic at the heart of their relationship. The easy kicks they get from casual theft and outrageous fibs soon pale when Thomas makes an unexpected breakthrough onto the contemporary art scene. Unbalanced by their new power dynamic, Signe makes a desperate and extreme attempt to redirect attention back to herself.

Kristine Kujath Thorp’s spot-on physical comedy and charismatic performance as the narcissistic Signe power this modern fable, making us care whilst also mining the comic depths of Signe’s destructive personality for so many WTF moments. Pitch-black in its humour, the ever-provocative writer-director Kristoffer Borgli serves up one of this year’s most deliciously horrid treats.
