Turn Me On, Dammit!

Rated NR 76 minutes 2012

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.
