An extraordinary portrait of a group of Southern teens hanging out in cars, rooms, and neighborhood yards in humid pool-party weather. Rødbro creates a deft and skilful montage in which animals, insects children and adolescents all inhabit an environment easily and warmly shared. Through subtly glancing shots taken at oblique angles and in brief bursts, I Touched Her Legs reaches directly into the soul of this small band of friends and explains everything that is important without a single dull expository declaration on their circumstances.
