- (FÅ MEG PÅ, FOR FAEN) 2011, Jannicke Systad Jacobsen, Norway, 76 min. With Helene Bergsholm, Malin Bjørhovde “Enormously entertaining...the film is both sexy and wholesome.” —Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer “Refreshing...funny...The way this salty-sweet comedy treats the hormone-addled turmoil of its 15-year-old heroine feels something close to revolutionary.” —Alison Willmore, Movieline Adored especially (but not exclusively) by female film critics for its frank but non-smarmy take on teen-girl lust, this fresh and funny coming-of-age story begins with its 15-year-old heroine masturbating noisily to a phone-sex operator while her dog stolidly looks on. Stuck in a beautiful but banal backwater where sheep and turnips are the main attractions, Alma (the charming Bergsholm) fantasizes furiously about her acquaintances male and female, especially hunky schoolmate Artur. But when he comes on to her too crudely at a party, nobody will believe her side of the story, and she ends up ostracized with an unflattering nickname. Should Alma stay and fight for her reputation, or run off to a fresh start in Oslo? In Norwegian with English subtitles. 35mm. (MR)
