Turn Me On, Dammit! (2011) Norway

A teen comedy on sex theme.

Comedy | Drama

Original title: 
meg på, for faen (Norwegian)

     Based on a book of the same name about a 15 year old girl Alma's sexual fantasies. A simple story for a silly reason takes place in a small Norwegian village. Occasionally, additional scenes that try to merge with the main story stream are totally a diversion to the viewers. Sometime what is real and what is fiction are too hard to differentiate from each other. Especially this whole story happens in the backdrop of an incident that takes place in the beginning of the movie. For that, to make clear to ourselves, we have to wait till the end where it explains. But still I am not sure whether it is a real or fantasy of Alma.

     The story is set in a small town called Skoddeheimen  located somewhere in Norway. A teenager, Alma is attracted to her classmate Artur and she filled with sex fantasies about him. One day at a party, her long pending desire gets fulfilled when she makes out the night with Artur. So she tells that to her two close friends, but they deny it as they are jealous of it. The relationship end there and friendship with Artur too. She's been outcasted by her schoolmates, instantly she's been teased by calling dick-Alma. As one side, she is obsessed with fantasies and other side bad remarks against her, will she rise from all these is what remaining portraits.

     Yeah, kinda chick movie, but without any regret I enjoyed it. It was just like the American movies about teenagers problems that they face in their school except it was not lousy. That mean not like a commercial movie where a protagonist rises from the ground with a master plan and take a revenge. More like a reality in presentation with nice characters and shot in a beautiful place. In other word, it is exactly same movie to Kristen Stewart's 'Speak' but story travels in the opposite direction with comedy as its genre.

Similar movies:
Speak, Totally True Love, Mean Girls, Easy A, Little Birds, Jack and Diane

Suitable for:
Tween, Teen, Adult, All

Final verdict:
Ignore, Bad, Average, Good, Excellent
