Having self-confidence is very important for everyone
Princesa is a film directed by Henrique Goldman in 2001. It tells the story of a transsexual woman who goes to Italy and works as a prostitute in order to earn money and pay for the SRS. I really like the film since it is very different from other transsexual films which I've seen before. Maybe it is because the film is released in Europe; therefore, the sexual scenes are more open and more acceptable to display to audience. I think the fans of the genre would be satisfied since it really shows the problems that transsexual people usually face in daily life. Not all transsexual people come from rich family; thus, it is really hard for poor transsexual people to pay the fee of sex change operation. However, it is really difficult for them to find a normal job since most of the people would discriminate them. The editing style is outstanding. The lighting is really dark in order to reflect the mood of corrupt life that Fernanda has. But, the lighting is getting brighter and brighter when Fernanda meets Gianni, a married businessman, which shows that Fernanda changes her lifestyle and becomes more like a normal person who has confident. The lighting is back to darkness when Fernanda leaves Gianni and goes back to her previous life as being a prostitute. Also, the director uses many short cuts during the sexually parts. The movie tries to tell viewer that people should be confident while facing problems. Fernanda loves Gianni since she feels that Gainni treats her as a real woman. However, she leaves him at the end because she does not have self confidence. Also, she knows that by doing the sex change operation, she still cannot pregnant and give Gainni a child.
