Sick of Myself

A woman seeks revenge against her famous artist boyfriend in Oslo's cultural scene.


Why watch this film?

A delirious satire on the immense power of egocentrism that has gained in our lives, to the point of unleashing truly chilling cases of narcissism. Sick of Myself is the story of Singe and Thomas, a competitive and unhealthy couple whose breaking point comes when he, an artist, starts gaining more attention. She, a modest cafe barista, feels jealous and resorts to extreme measures: take a forbidden medicine to purposely get sick and call attention. The situation spirals out of control to unimaginable levels that it's better not to say here to ruin the surprise. But suffice to say it is a portrait as funny as it is outrageous of a society that has put too much emphasis on the ego, and you will laugh as much as feel secondhand embarrassment. Read more in our complete review of Sick of Myself.
