Equal parts triangular love story and silly transgender romp
A love story between a man, a woman and a transvestite make up only half the footage but most of the sensible part of the plot. The best of the footage is a zany transvestite romp, a mix of MTV music and dance, far-out fashion show, queer histrionics, transgender politics, and comical theatrics. The first hour is spent on that with no inkling of where the movie is taking us. Is it only about transvestite pageantry? The sweet and sour of TV and TX life? Some may like it hot, but the average movie goers will only get their bearing when the initially thin plot finally coalesces into a worthy drama. If you are not prejudiced, hunker down and enjoy the wild ride. There is enough comedy to keep you interested. For non-Italian audiences a lot of the verbal humor is unfortunately lost in translation.
At heart a gay film, in both senses of the word, with a pinch of drama and an ample amount of good-natured queer silliness.
Mater Natura refers to a farm that a group of transvestites create and where they take refuge after they are confronted by the harsh reality of prejudice once too many times. In addition to organic agriculture, Mater Natura serves as a center for transgender counselling and a place where the macho man can find (permit me the expression) his inner-faggot.
