Classic American Films Inspire Norwegian Director Joachim Trier’s ‘Louder Than Bombs’

Louder Than Bombs director Joachim Trier speaks to Moveable Fest about his impetus for making his first American-language film after the success of his first two Norwegian movies.

“There was this fascination for a type of American movie that I grew up watching and loved, like Ordinary People, The Godfather or The Ice Storm, films that are dealing with great characters and family dynamics with great actors,” says Trier. “Americans have always done that so well and these days, it just seems there aren’t that many films that do it. Since I was in the fortunate position of getting this financed also out of Europe, combined with some great American producers as well, I was allowed to do that type of movie without all the commercial pressure that a lot of American filmmakers experience.”
