Girls Girls Girls
Three young Finnish women explore love and sex in this spirited coming-of-age drama, which won the World Cinema Dramatic Audience Award at Sundance 2022.
High school best friends Mimmi and Rönkkö work at the smoothie parlour in the local mall, exchanging gossip and taking delight in the puntastic names of the fruit drinks they sell (Lime of Passion anyone?). Both single, Rönkkö is after that elusive spark of instant attraction, whilst the tempestuous Mimmi scoffs there’s no such thing until elite skater Emma is queuing up to buy a drink and immediately sparks fly between them. It’s not long before they are diving headfirst into a passionate relationship, becoming all-consuming in the way only first love can be and which just might threaten Emma’s chances of competing in the European championships.
With a smart and energetic script whose narrative unfurls over three consecutive Fridays in the young women’s lives, Girls Girls Girls boasts a trio of fantastic lead performances. These intertwining love stories are nuanced and relatable to everyone, whether or not you believe in love at first sight.
