In Jannicke Systad Jacobsen’s delightful Få meg på, for faen,  Alma, 15 years old, is horny. Consumed by her fantasies she seems to bother everyone. And she is quite alone in her quest for answers and possible results.

This is one surprising take on such a subject (young woman’s desire) and a clever one that brought home the best screenplay award from Tribeca Film fest in 2011. Simple and direct this is a little gem of  comedy drama on Sexual (miss) understanding and the rite of passage. It is successful in depicting a clever young character (played by then new comer Helene Bergsholm) who tries to come into possession of herself at a difficult age. A very charming and clever film.
