MA VIE EN ROSE / MY LIFE IN PINK BY ALAIN BERLINER 1997
1 hour 29 minutes
Ludovic is waiting for a miracle. With seven-year-old certainty, he believes he was meant to be a little girl – and that the mistake will soon be corrected. But where he expects the miraculous, Ludo finds only rejection, isolation and guilty – as the intense reactions of family, friends, and neighbors strip away every innocent lace and bauble. As suburban prejudices close around them, family loves and loyalties are tested in the ever-escalating dramatic turns of Alain Berliner’s critically acclaimed first feature. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and a favorite at festivals around the world, this unique film experience delivers magic of the rarest sort through a story of difference, rejection, and childlike faith in miracles.
