Two sister ballerinas dance through the villages and forests of the Sámi land in this whimsical and disarming commentary on indigenous sovereignty and land ownership (The Sámi are the only indigenous people within the European Union area).
Three young girls' friendship is tested after they plant a very special flower; the Nectar from the flower changes their lives - and friendship - forever, as they get a taste of what it's like growing up as a boy. It's a story of how we've created gender, and how to know who you are when society is telling you who you should be, but also a story about young love and lust.Written by

Does team spirit mean anything to you?
You have a bad attitude.
It's you that have a bad attitude! Why don't you tell the boys to shut up? You're the teacher here!
Kim, you've got to toughen up. If the boys are tough on you, be tough back. You're fourteen, right? If something makes you mad, you have to give as good as you get. Take responsibility for the situation. You're a part of it, too.
[Kim walks away, scowling]
Shape up! I don't want any more of that attitude!

Simply wondrous film of coming of age in a very different way – from Sweden
Kim, Momo and Bella are three teenage girls going to a highly unenlightened school I Sweden. They are different – lesbians being the label the other kids give them. The three of them are alone together and cocoon themselves off away from the pain and ridicule as much as they can.
Then one day a package of plant seeds arrives and it contains a seed that they had not ordered, so they plant it in the greenhouse and it miraculously grows into a flowering beauty overnight. Then, as in a Fairy Tale of old, they each taste the juice of its fruits. The results are brilliant and leads them on to a journey of discovery about their true selves.
Now I thoroughly enjoyed this – the Fairy Tale element really worked even though I normally dislike such contrivances and devices. The acting is all excellent as is the direction and the story has a vibrancy that carries you with it – completely recommended.
