Often poignant, frequently funny and ultimately uplifting, this excellent documentary gives three young women the chance to tell their own stories about growing up with the universal awkwardness of adolescence further complicated by their homosexuality.

Though the participants come from the reputedly liberated land of Sweden, it is painfully apparent from this film that small-town bigotry is everywhere. Nevertheless, the trio face up to their dilemmas with a mixture of determination and wry humour that is touching and inspiring.

When I read that the three had been given hand-held cameras and invited to shoot their own footage, I feared that the film might have a clumsy home-movie feel. I was quite wrong. It's actually beautifully edited, and the 74 minutes zipped by. There's some great music too, some of it performed by our three heroines.

Some of the most poignant moments come from the fear that all three girls express about 'coming out' to their parents. Seeing said parents introduced, you suspect that it isn't really going to be as bad as they think, and the film ends up making a strong case for frank communication as well as for gay rights. A charming, powerful, heartwarming and very human story.
