Turn Me On, Dammit!
From Norway comes this comic look at teenage feelings. Fifteen-year-old Alma (Helene Bergsholm) is consumed by visions of love--from the innocently romantic to the hormone-addled erotic. But her prospects in small-town Skoddeheimen are distressingly slim. Loosely adapted from a novel by Olaug Nissen, this coming-of-age tale features a refreshingly female viewpoint and spends more time on realistic growing pains than on jokey sexual encounters. Still, its good-natured sense of humor manages to concoct some gleefully blush-inducing scenarios. In Norwegian with English subtitles. 76 minutes
