Directed by Xavier Dolan
An epic and visually stunning tale of profound love. Laurence, a French teacher and soon-to-be-published author, enjoys an intense and mutually loving relationship with his fiancée, Frédérique. But on the day after his 35th birthday, Laurence confesses to Fred that he longs to become a woman, asking her to support his transition.
Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan chronicles ten years in the lives of a couple as one of them undergoes a male-to-female transformation.
Cast: Melvil Poupaud, Suzanne Clément, Nathalie Baye
It's my favourite film
Loved being in Quebec, hearing English sprinkled though out le francais. Great acting. Too long! But then the transition was long, so it was a good mirror of reality. The arguments were sincere/reminded me of times w/my ex... before divorce. When we stopped arguing, no relationship was left. It showed the passion/love that still existed between the 2 main characters/between my ex & myself. First time I have seen my true feelings, during that most painful time in my life, revealed in a film. Thus... a very effective adaptation of life onto the screen of cinema.
mostly great gets a bit redundant_Lawrence & Fred are both great_Fred does a much better job with Lawrence then i could ever do_there are some totally wonderful sequences chapters what have you_it's such a long story_but there's a lot of magic
