Critic Reviews for My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose)
Credit should go foremost to du Fresne, who is great as Ludovic. It's pretty astounding how capable he is at conveying Ludovic's feelings, particularly when she's swallowing others' transphobia.
The movie is about two ways of seeing things: the child's and the adult's. It shows how children construct elaborate play worlds out of dreams and fantasies, and then plug their real worlds right into them.
Queer movies can run adjacent to or parallel to other Queer lives, but it's rare that a movie will ever intersect with my life or even contain numerous scenes that I have personally lived. Ma Vie En Rose does that.
About the unimaginative struggle to maintain conventional respectability, and the transgender child who is having none of it...
Director Alain Berliner and screenwriter Chris vender Stappen have created one of the most authentic, touching households ever put on film.
Audience Reviews for My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose)
Off-beat gender bender that's at times funny, at times poignant, and always entertaining. Ma Vie En Rose manages to vilify our collective ignorance without insulting our sensibilities. A truly remarkable film.
*High marks for set decoration and cinematography as well as casting and direction.
Writer and director Alain Berliner has made a fresh film about what it takes to survive in a world where people still measure others by codes of conformity, prejudice, and small-mindedness. The incomparable Ludovic stands his ground. Ma Vie En Rose isn't necessarily trying to advance an agenda, and it's not a movie about homosexual issues. It's about someone who is convinced he's something that physiologically he's not. Maybe it's just a phase he's going through, maybe he'll grow up to be gay. The movie doesn't really address that. It's about what is going on in Ludovic's head right now.
That poor cute little boy (girl). My heart wept for his (her) situation. :(
