Turn Me On, Dammit! Trailer

"So, my friends, let's make music, together." What do we have here? Thanks to a tip from Jeff Wells, there's a trailer for a Norwegian film called Turn Me On, Dammit! that you've got to see, or rather hear, because it uses an Orson Welles sample in the music and it's amazing. The film, being released by New Yorker, is an "offbeat coming-of-age comedy with a deadpan sense of humor, enlivened by its rich sense of fantasy and frank but sweet approach to teen sexuality." Helene Bergsholm stars as the lead girl, and the film got a couple of rave reviews (see here or here). Now I am definitely curious to see it, as that was a terrific trailer.

Watch the official US trailer for Jannicke Systad Jacobsen's Turn Me On, Dammit!, via YouTube:

In Skoddeheimen, 15-year-old Alma (HeleneBergsholm) is consumed by her hormones and fantasies that range from sweetly romantic images of Artur, to daydreams about practically everybody she lays eyes on.

Turn Me On, Dammit!, originally titled Få meg på, for faen in Norwegian, is both written and directed by doc filmmaker Jannicke Systad Jacobsen (A Little Red Dot, War on Paranoia, The Clown Children), based on a novel by Olaug Nilssen. This premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and also played at the Zurich, Chicago, Roma, Mill Valley and Stockholm Film Festivals. New Yorker Films is releasing in limited theaters starting March 30th this spring. For more on the film, visit the official website or Facebook page.
