Three Finnish teenagers fumble their way through house parties, orgasms and tumultuous queer romance in this refreshingly candid coming-of-age tale. Sundance 2022.
Told over three Fridays, Girl Picture follows whip-smart best friends Mimmi and Rönkkö – two teens mystified by the pitfalls of love and desire. Sparks fly when hot-headed Mimmi meets Emma, an elite figure skater determined to reach the European championships. Meanwhile, Rönkkö embarks on a bold quest to orgasm for the first time. Leaning into joy and discomfort, filmmaker Alli Haapasalo paints a tender portrait of young women on the watershed between adolescence and adulthood. Terrific performances and banter cement Girl Picture as a remarkably authentic ode to female friendship and first love.

ALLI HAAPASALO is a Finnish director-writer. With Girl Picture, she continues her passion for strong female-driven stories. She has an MFA from NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
Positive energy, emotional honesty and a trio of strong central performances.
Amber Wilkinson, Screen International
Girl Picture is sweet, tender, and frequently amusing: a love letter to that time we ache to leave in the rearview mirror but which shapes who we are and how we love more than anything else.
Brianna Zigler, The Film Stage

Mark Targets
Two friends join a women’s self-defence class, where they set their sights on a handsome but unwitting instructor. But when they play flirty games at his expense, the question is raised: are there such things as “harmless” predators?
