Overview

Signe (Kristine Kujath Thorp) is a stylish, insecure millennial working a dead-end job in Oslo, Norway. When her vapid artist boyfriend Thomas (Eirik Sæther) finds overnight success with sculptures made from stolen designer chairs, their already competitive relationship intensifies. With a compulsive drive to make herself the centre of any situation, Signe orders an illegal Russian pharmaceutical online and embraces its disfiguring side effects.

Official Selection

Cannes Film Festival

“Terrible people do awful things, deliciously, in this satire of a competitive relationship”

The Observer

“Horribly, shamefully, hilariously relatable … A vicious little treat to enjoy”

The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s not Female Trouble, but it’s just as nuts. Pretty? Pretty f**ked up!”

John Waters

Why See This Film

A wickedly funny satire of toxic relationships and contemporary narcissism, Kristoffer Borgli’s Sick of Myself (Cannes, Un Certain Regard) is a razor-sharp “unromantic comedy” from the producers of The Worst Person in the World. Counting John Waters, Ari Aster and Michael Cera among its devoted fans, Sick of Myself is the kind of film you’ll be talking about for weeks afterwards, and is simply one of the darkest, funniest, most outrageous films to come along in an age.
