The movie was over ambitious..
30 November 2004 | by (Germany,8X) – See all my reviews

Having seen this film, I was left with the feeling that it betrayed its title. Although the acting was superb, the script or directing was lacking. This had to happen. Each of the three characters is the center of a separate story and each of these stories could have quite happily been a separate film. Agnes' story succeeds in being painful to watch, but I was lost because so little time given to Agnes' characterization. Agnes' fate begs the question: "Is there no happy ever after for Transexuals?" Of Course there is. But, it does not suit the tone of the film, which is a parody on middle class, liberal, left wing families.

I can't see this being a fair answer to American Beauty as that film was quite mystical in nature and the main character was very well introduced and described.
