Weird story about a brain transplant...
3 May 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 5/3/2002 - 3 out of 10(Dir-Leon Klimovsky): Weird story about a brain transplant performed on a woman's body with a man's brain. What ensues, of course, is chaos for the victim of the operation who becomes confused, obviously, about his/her identity and what he/she is supposed to do about it. What could have been an interesting exploration in the difference between men and women becomes more of an exploitative one-sided view of the heathen, filthy men and a display of a one-sided world that caters to men and treats women like trash. I can't say that some of this probably wasn't true especially in the early 70's, but when the movie turns into a typical thriller/type situation where the man/woman tries to get the best out of his/her life by ruining other people's it gets out of hand.
