13-year old Rikke sees Bea, the new girl in her class, as a challenge. After an endurance test to find which of them can lie longer in a circle of flames, they become friends. However, as a result of some unfortunate truths and half-truths, the friendship falters. Rikke feels that Bea has let her down, and resolves to continue the rivalry between them, but now in a less physical, more artful way. In addition we meet Rikke's elder sister Ninni, who has been in England to learn the language, and has had to leave her great love, a man twelve years her senior. The film is also about the problems Rikke encounters in fulfilling the expectations of those around her as she approaches womanhood.Written by

I've always thought that probably the environment influences if you like a movie or not. I just saw this movie at 10PM. Night is perfect for quiet movies. I liked it. It's about a red haired girl in it's teens, she has a new girl friend, her sister is dating a grown up. It's a little light, I mean, you don't see corpses or violence, it's a nice movie about a girl trying to fit in, though that's not what the movie is all about, it's about friendship and what you do to please others ... again, I liked it.
