Storyline

Tiresia is at the same time woman and man, according to Greek Mythology. Here, Tiresia is a Brazilian transexual living with her brother in the outskirts of Paris. Terranova, an admirer of aesthetics, is a dreamer. His obsession with Tiresia leads him to kidnapping her. However, without her regular dose of hormones, Tiresia gradually starts to change back to a male. Displeased, Terranova blinds Tiresia and abandons her in the countryside. There, Anna takes charge of Tiresia, helping her recover. Written by A Verdade

Quotes

Tiresia II: I was from the favela slums. I always knew my life would be different from other boys. But I didn't choose, not even that. It was there. It took a lot of work. It was my own war. I became a woman, then a whore. Little boys who become women, they become whores. Then a man tore out my eyes. Now I have a gift, so I give. I don't see the wrong in that. All of you look at me, thinking it's more, it's a great joy. But it's a celebration in despair. No one sees that. I can't decide. That's how it is. ...

28 April 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I'll never forget this movie I've seen with my boyfriend by chance, one night, on cable TV. Beginning with the highest symphony ever made (Beethoven's 7th), a burning volcano, then the cold and frightening voice of Lucas (one of the best french actors)...you just have to let yourself go in this symphonic movie, in between calm and tough unexpected moments of violence. So you stay nervous till the end, and even if you know a part of the key of the mystery before its end, it doesn't matter, as the actors keep you under their control. I wont tell more about this piece of pure art, to keep its secret. Just watch it, no matter where and how !
