I was once a "child" - full of awe, wonderment, and an overall appreciation of...just - being. Yes, just being!
We were all there at one point in our lives - whether you can, or choose too, remember at all.
That childhood was full of light. That childhood was full of naivete. That childhood was full of love.That childhood was full of innocence.
One day I realized that I was no longer a child. I don't know exactly how - nor when. The "light bulb" just turned on. I became a young adult. I knew "certain" things and realized "other" things. That's the day I lost "that childhood". I knew what other people expected of me.
"That childhood" is what we all long to return to. "That childhood" is the essence of pure love without conditions - and no expectations". That childhood" is what this movie is all about.
As an "unadulterated being" we see ourselves as the center of the universe. It is "our" world which all about us takes part in. "We" are the reason our parents go to work. "We" are the reason a billboard is placed in a certain spot. "We" are the reason for everything. "We" are neither plotters nor planners. "We" are not in it for ourselves - after all - the world is ALL about ourselves - innocently and faithfully we just know this.
Growing up is a slap in the face of "that childhood". There comes a time when all of society plops it's weight on the unconditional love we feel. There comes a time when all of society says to us "Wake up - this world is not yours".
I cried as I watched the real world crashing down on Ludovic.
This is not so much a story about gender identity as it is a story about the loss of "that childhood" innocence.
