Storyline

Eternal daydreamer Mel (Anjorka Strechel) can't wait to quit her sucky catering job and fly to her dream destination: Portugal. Things change when the beautiful Jenny (Lucie Hollmann) literally crashes into her life when Mel nearly runs her over in her classic BMW. It is love at first sight, however there is just one problem: Jenny mistakenly assumes Mel to be a boy. Despite this, the pair become boyfriend and girlfriend. With Mel attempting to disguise her true gender at every turn, her journey from tomboy to out lesbian is fraught with life-defining dilemmas and sweet surprises. Written by Peccadillo Pictures

Tender Gender Bender
27 May 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Without destroying the story or climax let me state that this film is not one of erotica nor inappropriateness. I saw it tonight at the Annual Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival in Calgary, Canada. This a mild tragedy of a 22 year old gender confused, but totally innocent and inexperienced, F to M person leading a double life whose colleagues and family are unaware that their dear friend and sister is trans-gendered. She fakes heterosexual love affairs while doubling as a boy in love with an essentially innocent 14 year old girl (played by Lucie Hollmann). Except for a 5 second distance shot, there is no nudity and no nudity whatsoever of Ms. Hollman. The film is about dealing with taboos and discoveries and in many ways a tragic tear jerker. You actually feel for this couple who cannot continue. This film will be of interest to both straight and GLTG viewers alike. It is a love tragedy like no other but nonetheless uses classic Greek techniques. Even Nietzsche would approve.
