Memento Intl Acquires Cannes’ Un Certain Regard Film ‘Sick of Myself’

Memento International has acquired LA-based Norwegian filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli’s Sick of Myself, which will have its world premiere at Un Certain Regard in Cannes.

Borgli previously directed the short films, including Former Cult Member Hears Music For The First Time and Eer, which ran on Sundance.

Sick of Myself stars Kristine Kujath Thorp (Ninjababy, The Burning Sea) and Eirik Sæther, a contemporary artist making his acting debut. The film was directed by Benjamin Loeb, cinematographer for Pieces of a Woman, Mandy and When You Finish Saving the World.

The picture revolves around Signe and Thomas, whose dysfunctional relationship takes a devilish turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. Signe embarks on a desperate quest to reclaim her status and attention by creating a new personality at all costs.

Andrea Berentsen Ottmar and Dyveke Bjørkly Graver of Oslo Pictures, the banner behind Joachim Trier’s Oscar-nominated The Worst Man Alive, are producing with Sweden’s Garage Film International and Film i Väst.

“It’s not often that you see such a bold and original cinematic offering,” said Memento International, which will handle the film’s worldwide sales. The company described the film as “a social satire filled with dark humor and unforgettable moments.”

Sick of Myself joins Memento International’s list for Cannes 2022, which also includes Tarik Saleh’s Palme d’Or contender Boy From Heaven and Marcelo Gomes’ Brazilian love story Paloma, which premieres at Cannes will celebrate its world premiere. Also on the list of Memento International are the Berlinale competition film “The Line” by Ursula Meier and the French thriller “Tropic of Violence” by Manuel Schapira.
