Synopsis by Mark Deming
Four people share the stories of their first sexual experience in this animated short subject from Swedish filmmaker Jonas Odell. Each vignette features a different look and animation style, and the stories covers a time span from the 1920's to the present day. Each narrator recalls their loss of virginity in a different way, ranging from deeply romantic nostalgia to befuddled disappointment to terror in the face of unexpected violence as their stories play out on screen. Aldrig Som Forsta Gangen! (aka Never Like The First Time!) received the Golden Bear Award for best short subject at the 2006 Berlin Film Festival.
