16 year old Christine and Laura are best friends. They drink, party, talk dicks, vomit and are still virgins. Maria is new at school. She’s been in New York, Berlin and seems to know a lot about life, dicks and partying. Her “devil”-ish attitude lures Laura to her world, alienating Christine who rapidly loses her best friend.
Laura’s parents trust their daughter. Maria’s parents are total absent. When Laura’s parents realise their daughter is lying, they become less tolerant. When Maria sets up Laura into a sex game with older boys, she will have a few thoughts coming up and re-adjust what’s best for her.
Like the Doillons (Jacques and daughter Lola) films on adolescence, You and Me Forever is a close-up portrait film living little space for the surrounding, apart from the countryside somewhere in Denmark when Laura is being “kidnapped” by her parents.
Laura, Christine and a young boy form a sort of ménage à trois in a disused graffiti building where one wonders if them standing on top of that building will end like Thelma and Louise.
