Review: Like a typical American teenager, Sabine is obsessed with her weight, her chest, her thighs, and chasing boys. Unlike an American, this Swiss girl is worried that her breasts are too big and her thighs are too small. And her interest in boys — well, she's mostly interested in outrunning them.
Sabine is a high school athlete first, a girl second, and if she has any interest in school or family, we barely see it. As headstrong as she is talented, the young sprinter bucks against the rules of the sport, her coach's methodical training regimen, and the culture's expectations of schoolgirls. She secretly trains to the point of exhaustion, against her coach's orders, and she insists she should race the faster boys, not the slower girls. When a new boy, Rudi, transfers to the school and instantly becomes its best runner, Sabine gets her first crush — but it's not clear whether it's the boy or just his running skills she wants to rub off on her. This pretty teenage girl is a hard case. She has the determination it takes to challenge the limits placed on her as a woman — or to self-destruct trying.
"Strong Shoulders" is not the classic sports movie about winning or losing the big game. It's one of those faux-docu dramas with that low-tech handheld-camera aesthetic that turns mainstream American audiences off — but it's a very good study of a girl on the edge. Sabine is a gifted young person trying to grow up too fast, glorying in her successes but eaten up by her impatience. Parts of the film move slowly but other parts shock us on an intimate level with their reversal of our expectations about how girls grow up. For some viewers, the movie itself will test their patience, but this small, narrowly focused story has a measure of surprising truth as well. -

Review: A lonely, striking older woman and a shy young student who delivers flowers as a part-time job are attracted to each other in this engaging story. It is the mid-1960s and Herman (Torstein Holmebak) buys Beatles records like everyone else, he also indulges in an erotic magazine or two to satisfy a growing curiosity about sex, and he is not actively pursuing his occasional date Unni (Karoline Waal). Instead, Herman's imagination has been quickened by Rose (Lise Fjeldstad), a woman who orders flowers for herself on a regular basis. As Rose tells Herman the story of how she used to work in the circus in a trapeze act but was deserted by her lover when she became pregnant, Herman is even more enthralled by her appeal as a woman...and a close encounter of the traditional kind seems almost inevitable. - Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide
