4.0 out of 5 stars "Wild, wet dreams" , a girl's perspective, September 3, 2013
This review is from: Turn Me On, Dammit! (DVD)
In the opening scene of this refreshing movie that addresses adolescent sexuality from a girl's perspective, the lead character, Alma (Helene Bergscholm) , a 15-year-old teenager, is lying on a kitchen table and pleasuring herself to phone sex. This sets the scene for the rest of the movie which explores Alma's desires, her raging hormones, and her sexual awakening. (Note: The film is in Norwegian with English subtitles as an option, and there are some explicit scenes).

Alma's sexual escapades are explored with unabashed frankness, and the sex scenes are credibly dealt with. Alma's hormones are depicted as being totally off kilter to the point that sex is all she thinks about, "I want a hammer inside of me..." You get the picture. But then an encounter with a local boy changes things in Alma's life and she becomes the talk of the town, and not in a good way. The local kids call her "Dick Alma", and the girl becomes a social pariah.

It might be a bit shocking for some viewers because this is after all a 15-year-old girl who is depicted smoking hash cigarettes and drinking alcohol, but the issues dealt with are very real, and are explored in a realistic, down-to-earth manner. This film is very different to what one comes across in Hollywood films. Movies like American Pie dealt with adolescent sexuality from a boy's point of view, and a slew of Hollywood movies have explored the subject, but mainly from the male perspective. This is why "Turn Me On, Dammit!" is unique, as it doesn't shy away from portraying female sexuality with a level of candidness not common in American cinema. There's drama and humor aplenty, and the wonderful performance by the lead actress makes this a noteworthy production well-worth one's time.
