Comedy
The 1980s were particularly rife with movies about sex and the teenage boy. Porky’s, Zapped, My Tutor, Mischief—they were everywhere. Now Norway introduces us to a worthy female counterpart, Turn Me On, Dammit! It treads the same ground, only better, employing frank sexual themes and a healthy dose of razor-sharp comedy. We meet Alma (Helene Bergsholm), all of 15 years old, masturbating on the kitchen floor while calling a phone-sex line. She’s perpetually horny. She fantasizes about everybody, especially Artur (Matias Myren), with whom she has a clumsy real sexual encounter that leads to all of the usual inescapable teenage rumors. Running less than 80 minutes long, Turn Me On, Dammit! gets plenty of mileage out of a deeply acerbic sense of humor, and Bergsholm is terrific as a kind of Nordic cross between Taylor Swift and Juno.
Director: Jannicke Jacobsen
Cast: Helene Bergsholm, Henriette Steenstrup, Malin Bjorhovde, Matias Myren, Beate Stofring, Lars Listau, Julia Bache-Wiig, Jon Devik, Julia Schacht and Arthur Berning
