Deep inside, Manuel has always been Manuela. Amidst her worst love crisis, Manuela reinvents herself as Manuel in order to pass as the fiancé of her best friend Coca - who is pregnant from a one-night stand and must face her conservative family. Hidden identities, misunderstandings, and the tension between two friends pretending to be what they are not, stage a colorful and up-beat story. Manuela y Manuel is a visually-captivating comedy about two friends performing in the melodrama of Latin America life.Written by
I saw the film at the SF LGBT Film Festival and thought it was original, lovely and extremely well done. The characters were very engaging and every now and then even sympathetic.
I'm a HUGE fan of Umberto Busto, so I was sold from the beginning. Hilarious, but with depth and I think the filmmakers did a fantastic job of portraying the lead characters. I always feel like a film is successful when I walk away caring about the characters, and that definitely happened with M y M. My only wish is that it seemed a little long at points.
I wonder if there's a way to get this on DVD? This is a film I'd like to own, but know most of these festival films never really get released.
