Okay Documentary about Fascinating Subject
27 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

To experience someone's story is such a privilege. That's what I kept thinking as I watched this rather intimate documentary about a transgender man and how his transition affects his singing voice. It's rather sad to watch him losing his ability to sing, although the original songs we do hear are nice and heartfelt. I also liked the interviews with the parents, both Simon's and his girlfriend's. It was fascinating to see what they made of everything that was happening.

While this documentary's subject matter is compelling, sometimes it's not clear what's happening. I was especially unsure what was going on when Simon and his girlfriend went to hospital at one point. Also, some of the material seems a bit like "padding," moments that might be better suited to a home video. But Simon is interesting enough--he's a "funny kind of guy" to spend time with--, and that makes this fascinating documentary easy to watch.
