    (Få meg på, for faen | 2011 | Norway) dir Jannicke Systad Jacobsen w/Helene Bergsholm, Malin Bjørhovde, Henriette Steenstrup [76 min] TURN ME ON, DAMMIT!, the feature debut of Jannicke Systad Jacobsen, is a whimsical and refreshingly honest coming of age story about the blossoming sexuality of a teenage girl. 15-year-old Alma (Bergsholm) is consumed by her out-of-control hormones and fantasies that range from sweetly romantic images to daydreams. Alma and her best friend Sara live in an insufferably boring little town in the hinterlands of Norway called Skoddeheimen, a place they loathe so much that every time their school bus passes the sign that names it, they routinely flip it off. Laced with warmth and quirky humor, TURN ME ON, DAMMIT! is a light-hearted take on a story that is told so often about boys and so rarely about teenage girls. ••• “Funny, embarrassing and poignant without ever seeming leering or exploitative.” —Alison Willmore, Movieline ••• “Has a gentle oddness as unforced as its performances and as inoffensive as its dialogue. Adapting Olaug Nilssen’s novel, Ms. Systad Jacobsen is alive to the cruelties and quirks of adolescence… and especially the sexual double standard.” —Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
