Storyline

Renato, a very effeminate gay who is called "Marlene" in honour of Marlene Dietrich, because of a promise he made for his sick grandmother, he must try the opposite sex at least one time. He think he has a chance with Ginevra, a fond lesbian leader of the rock band "The fucking sisters". She has already discovered her girlfriend with a man, so she decides to find out how it feels to have sex with a man. Curiously, they met on a wedding of a common relative, so they both think their partner is straight. Written by Zyl <a_d_to@hotmail.com>

A real turning point
31 August 1999 | by (Turin, Italy) – See all my reviews

Antonello De Leo, for his first feature film, choose a difficult subject, in which is easy to repeat the same old gay cliches. Instead he built a funny and well done ambiguous comedy. The screenplay is good and pleasant: it doesn't make platitudinous the very frequent unexpected events, leading the audience in an irresistible twister. This movie marks a real turning point in the gay italian cinema: you can just look at "Come mi vuoi" and "Uomini uomini uomini" to notice it.
