When I first heard about this movie, I myself was in my teens struggling with identity issues like the main character in the movie. As a transsexual woman myself, the movie plot drew me in. I had no idea that the movie would be a mirror image of my own life, of what had taken place right in my very own home growing up. Ludovic, as innocent as he may be, struggles with the reasoning as to why something that comes so natural to him is so disconcerting to all those around him. This movie captures the pureness and innocence of children and their wild imaginations. As Ludovic faces many obstacles in the movie, including rejection from his very own parents, he somehow finds the courage within him to stay true to his convictions that he is a girl. Let this movie enlighten you, and you will be left wondering what would have come of Ludovic if the movie reflected on him as an adult. The actor of Ludovic was stupendous and completely convincing.
