The director comments how: “I wanted to capture this somewhat uncomfortable story in the most beautiful way possible. I wanted to shoot it during the beautiful summers we have in Oslo. I wanted it to look and feel as timeless as possible, both to balance the very contemporary story and to hint at the timeless relevance of some of the themes, like narcissism and jealousy. So we shot it on 35mm, there’s a lot of classical music in the film, and I hope all of that translates into a beautiful film that portrays terrible things.”
