A dark and immensely funny satire of Japan's relationship to the West, its xenophobia, and the country's uneasy balance between modernity and tradition. International Film Festival Favorite!

Sneak Preview prior to Theatrical Release

Dir. Koji Fukuda (95min, Japan, 2011)

A sexually charged coming of age story about a Norwegian teenage girl whose imagined exploits lead her to become the town outcast, before she takes matters into her own hands.

"Despite the movie's subject, the director, Jannicke Systad Jacobsen, avoids exploitation. She uses sweet, deadpan humor to take the sting out of the sexual frankness" - V.A. Musetto, NY Post

Winner of Best Screenplay at the Tribeca Film Festival!
