Joachim Trier is a filmmaker with a great sense of the cinematic and understanding of filmmaking. To me, what makes a film stand out against others is how you tell the story, the filmmaker's visual storytelling style, and I agree with Trier when he says, "I think that it is very important that in this moment in time to remember that dramaturgy and how you structure a story is something very personal, and it is not something that you can really learn from a book or you can abide to any of the rules that you hear...the most personal thing you do as a filmmaker is where you put your camera, how you perceive things, how you see them. And I would say mise-en-scène is the most important aspect of it." Your style of visual storytelling is what grips the audience. It is also what makes your film personal, which then leads to the universal as we all share in the emotions and experiences that life brings to us.
