Trapped in a Wrong Body
3 July 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the 80's, the teenage orphan and intern of an institution for protection of minors Vera Bauer (Ana Beatriz Nogueira) becomes the protégé of her teacher Paulo (Raul Cortez) that gets a job for her in a library. Bauer is a poetess and lives an inner conflict with her sexuality, feeling a man trapped in a female body. She falls in love with Clara (Aida Leiner), who works in the video department of the library and has a son, and they have a relationship. While she writes her biography, she recalls her life in the institution. However, she is not able to deal with her sexual crisis.

"Vera" is a sensitive film about lesbianism directed by Sergio Toledo and based on the true story of the transsexual Anderson Bigode Herzer a.k.a. Sandra Mara Herzer. This film has magnificent direction and performances, complemented by the soundtrack of Arrigo Barnabé, Roberto Ferraz and Tércio da Motta.

In 1987, "Vera" was awarded with the "Troféu Candango" in the Brasília Festival in the categories Best Actress (Ana Beatriz Nogueira); Best Soundtrack (Arrigo Barnabé, Roberto Ferraz and Tércio da Motta); and Best Sound (José Luiz Sasso) and the Silver Bear in the Berlin Festival in the category Best Actress (Ana Beatriz Nogueira), and the director Sergio Toledo was nominated for the Golden Bear. My vote is eight.
