Joachim Trier (a distant relation to Lars) makes his English-language debut with Louder Than Bombs, a suburban drama which tells the story of a father and two sons coming to terms with the grief process after the passing of their war-photographer mother.

Trier's exploration of death, fragmentation of memory and how it shapes identity is undercut by moments of wicked dry humour, meaning that the story never takes itself as seriously (or is as bleak) as the synopsis might suggest. Here, Devid Druid (who you may recall playing a young Louis C.K. in Louie) cements his burgeoning reputation as one of the best up and comers in the business, while Isabelle Huppert, Gabriel Byrne and Jesse Eisenberg fill solid supporting roles.

If elegant, Sam Mendes-esque subtlety is your bag, then look no further.
