People who might really exist
TRANSAMERICA is a film where you meet people who might really exist.
And real people are not only great or terrible, they are mostly both.
It is the acting and the dialog which makes all the difference. The
film offers a blueprinted storyline of two people who don't know each
other traveling together across the US, from NY to LA. Memories of
MIDNIGHT RUN and RAIN MAN do come up once in a while. But still this is
everything but a Hollywood product. The main character is a Transsexual
named Bree, born as a man but living the past few years as a woman,
only days before her operation which will definitely make her a woman.
That subject and, the fact, that the role is played by an actress
signifies a very different approach to the old gender questions. The
film offers funny moments too, but never makes fun about a man, wanting
to be a woman. The film is very subtle, and it is really a pity when it
is finally over. It displays very well that great stories don't require
great budgets to make great films! 9 out of 10!
