“Turn Me On, Dammit” is the fantasy adventure of a 15-year-old Norwegian girl named Alma who dreams of the day she loses her virginity. Every girl needs a goal, I guess.
She has fantasies of a neighbor kid named Artur, who seems content to just stare at her from afar, like some kind of Ken doll zombie.
That is until one evening at a community dance, Alma and Artur find themselves outside the hall, where Artur proceeds to reveal his — ahem — “Magic Mike” and touch it against her leg. What the heck is wrong with this kid?
Fairly shocked, Alma runs and tells her girlfriends, who don’t believe her. She becomes the laughingstock of her class because of her “outrageous” claim.
Alma also consults a specifically trained phone operator (if you catch my drift) that she knows by name in trying to figure out how to deal with Artur’s odd behavior. How about sending the little creep to jail? Not even Alma’s mother knows how to handle her hormone-raging little darling.
I know the Norwegians are all progressive and everything, but this bold little sex comedy is really out there. I’m surprised the mom didn’t just buy the poor girl a “night light” and be done with it.
Oh well, it is what it is.
