Movie Info

Author Emma Hamberg's popular coming of age novel gets the big screen treatment in director Hella Joof's gentle drama about a group of naïve adolescents forced to grow up before their time. Ninth grader Lina (Mylaine Hedruel) has never been kissed, and now she is thinking about losing her virginity. While most of Lina's time is spent hanging out with her two best friends Thea (Alice Kastrup Moller) and Carro (Lovisa Onnermark), lately her attentions have been drifting towards handsome young Ivar (Viktor Axelsson). Despite her frequent fantasies about him, however, Lina soon begins to realize that Ivar may not be the man for her after all. The other candidate is an older charmer named Danne (Rickard Roxvall), but he too has his share of faults. In the coming days Lina will make a series of choices that could affect the rest of her life in ways she never imagined.

Critic Reviews for Bitter Sweetheart

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Eschewing the usual teen clichés and filled with a wonderful cast of young actors, Bitter Sweetheart is a gem whose honesty makes Juno seem positively prudish.

Parents may find this comedy more tragic than funny, but it's an honest and poignant one nonetheless.
