Four (real) people, both young and old, recount how they lost their virginity. The stories range from the heartfelt and romantic to a sad recollection of a booze-drenched rape. What is special here is the animation technique, changing from one story to the next and wonderfully adapted to the tone and content. Jonas Odell is perhaps the most prominent animator in Sweden, and this is his tour the force, utilizing photographs, chalk crayon, line drawings and all sorts of mixed media techniques to conjure a sense of presence in the story. In all its simplicity this short film carries a powerful punch, and the subject is one that has relevance for all of us.
