Teenager Jagoda is in a period when her world is flirting with the world of adults, which is full of new responsibilities. She attends the eighth grade of elementary school and has a best friend, Irena, who confides all her secrets to her. One such secret is her great love, a slightly older boyfriend Dear. Jagoda also has a friend, Nejc, who feels more than friendship towards her. Nejc doesn't know his father, so Jagoda helps him when he decides to look for him.Written by
Let's travel back in the seventies, when the Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia and people were working from 6am till 14pm and living in a "socialist paradise". Meet a 15-year old Jagoda, discovering the world of first affections, kisses, deceptions, friendships and revolts.
Although viewable this one has some flaws. Too ordinary story without humor scenes (and we are not talking here about serious drama), mediocre acting and trivial dialogs. On the other hand, we can't missed one scene that literary saves the movie. Jagoda under shower discovering her feminine side by touching herself.

All in all, beside this scene, there's nothing worth mentioning and that's why a mediocre
5 out of 10.
