A Fantastic Woman


Somewhere in Santiago at a dimly-lit nightclub, Orlando, the kindly and well-off owner of a textile company, locks eyes with Marina, a hopeful singer and the roughly half-his-age love of his life. But, unfortunately, after Marina's birthday celebration and a night of passion, Orlando falls gravely ill--and by the following morning--he dies in hospital. In the wake of her companion's untimely death, Marina will soon realise that, from now on, everything is brought into question: her involvement in Orlando's death, their unconventional relationship; and above all, her right to mourn her beloved deceased. In the end, what was Marina's crime; a deed so hideous that would rob a fantastic woman of her respect, her dignity, and ultimately, her identity?

Dark horse held the anniversary ceremony of the award "Oscar", was declared yourself Berlin film Chilean Director Sebastian Lelio.

The film's story is taught from the faces of the transsexual Marina, whose love for a man advanced in years brings it, surprisingly regular lives in the Chilean town of new experiences. The heroine feels a lot of inconvenience and troubles that the Director painstakingly weaves in the fabric of the film.

The picture is devoid of any humor and irony, which gives this private festival film, however, is directing and a carefully researched script is the main asset of "Fantastic women".

The authors do not trying to close the viewer with the eye excessive sentimentality, and the film is not becomes manifest tolerance, painting, it also does not cause discomfort when viewed at least me, do not agree that Daniela VEGA incredibly beautiful.

This film is worth a look, to see how modern filmmakers learn to re-tell stories, to apply the new methods of storytelling and praise the most beautiful and immense feeling in the world, of course love.

Let's start obstreperous from the theme of the film "Fantastic woman". Or at least suppose the film is not about the tranny, and an ordinary girl.

A story about how old wealthy man leaves from family a little kid to a girl much younger than him. In during their of meeting him is bad and he's dying. Next is the story of the relations of the family of the deceased and "adulterer's" in preparation for the funeral. The usual domestic drama.

Rate this film with the point of view of artistic merit.

Direction. Viscous, dull, uninteresting, boring. With the middle of the movie waiting for its completion. The Director doesn't know what to remove. The film is filled with pointless details. I and do not understand that found the main characters in cell in the sauna? And why had so many times show keys from this cell? No meaning or symbolism in this key is not found. And so almost at all. "What you see is what I sing, filling the film"

Acting. It just no. No emotions, no worries. One episode in the cemetery was apparently going to become an emotional climax. But emotions the main character we and saw a camera shyly avoided close-UPS. For emotions happened.

Camerawork. A third of the film blank frames. No about. The operator is not know that him off.

I was interested to see on modern Santiago — a beautiful city. Interesting with an ethnographic point of view, but in the storyline of the movie this beautiful city is just a background, he lives in video story lives it.

In other words, a very mediocre work.

Obviously, only one — the film won the attention just because it follows the life of Latin American transvestite. In main the only drama.

And exactly what it — a drag Queen, "makes a sudden" its positive hero.

Again present it to an ordinary girl: you have destroyed the family, come on the funeral, where the family of the deceased, to put it mildly not happy to your appearance. In what the fuck is your positivity? Does anyone blame the family of the deceased, when they will show you sympathy?

Do the fact that you're a transvestite, obliges all others to empathize with you, even when you, sorry, stole from the home of an elderly man? This wanted to convey to companies "academics" in awarding this film-srednjacima Oscar?

Are you serious?...

Even abstracting times of the topic. Objectively for work of average quality average rating:

When I included this film in the first place was prompted by the fact that I want to watch all the films honored with a nomination for Oscar to have a full understanding of the ceremony in this year well it's nice that has raised Berlinale and 17, at which is "a Fantastic woman" received a well-deserved silver bear for the script. But also this film received the award for best Latin American film. And after watching, I understand why such a rapture of this picture.

This is a very creepy film about identity, which is a sharp criticism from the outside world. Absolutely charming huge shemale beauty Marina meets it's not a young man who to this went from his family for her sake, already found for quite a long time while in some of nights without becoming ill, which leads to death the hospital. And it is necessary to solve the problem with a funeral: who can come and who is not; what to do with all of things of the deceased; where to put it the apartment where she lives; what to do with the car. And around this and the story unfolds. And that a man like the Marina, no one to take or even trying to pretend that takes, will be taken seriously and considered her rights. "What do you do this?" — set the characters in the movie. And only weak-willed brother of the deceased is trying to do something about it support and protect, but it looks rather pathetic. Sorry if to compare with this fantastic woman.

Marina in this film is faced with severe discrimination, disrespect for yourself from the family of her lover, which, even on the funeral want to call, because she said she was gonna ruin them only with their presence, and the same with law enforcement agencies, who believe that "I know all about you." And who is she? Many at this film sets a similar question — "you this?" "As to her appeal?", and some believe in yourself declare knowledge. And here first problem — absolute ignorance, and because of the absolute stupidity and violence against Marina. She answers that it is the same as they they are ready to devour her on the spot. No one wants to recognize it man, no one wants to admit Marina whatever she feels. All nicer to drive in some box, everything found on way, but it is a tactic uneducated people when it is not enough breadth of perception, all resets the together, and one that not together, just flies in the category of "this is wrong, it should not be". And she just wants to say goodbye to the last with a loved one, which will see, but he pursues and leads to yourself. He want to say goodbye it but the family somehow decided to spit on his desires and feelings everything is decided for him.

The importance of this film is clear for Chile five years ago there was a brutal murder on the reason for the dislike the orientation of the person, and the whole country was amazed by this cold animal cruelty, which stood for this monstrous human act. Then seriously and globally began to think about rights of the LGBT community, then he began to take anti-discrimination laws, couples were allowed to engage in legitimate partnerships, and continue to push the law on the resolution of full marriages in that time, as many of the neighbors on the continent already have such privileges for its citizens. So the question is "Fantastic women" raises and, as the theme of a slightly different nature — transsexuals. And it is important to show that there are such people and they are people too. And thanks to the nominations Oscar award in Berlin see the topic is relevant and not only for Chile but for the entire world. And that's right. And breakthrough the importance of this film that can show transsexuals in movies, people will go to watch them. Because basically no special representation of this group of people in the movie, only occasionally and often not in the best light. There is a chain of — Studio, distributors, spectator — and if some link is not like something the film just dies, even if the first two links will show that others do not like it. Therefore, taking these complex topics, which is certainly not can be popular — great courage and a huge sense of duty.

Marina on the entire film is faced with hatred and lack of understanding on others. They are treated as her with ugly or garbage. And all the time that I watched the movie, I were amazed by its internal power, internal core, which is not gave it broke, which led her to a small victory. And here it is understood the importance of tears — the film is hard to watch because you see the tears that had b applications from half of what is happening. It as a silent "Scream" by Munch; the scream bessvatnet terrifying and amazing. And then the same thing — it is silent in its suffering, no complaints, nothing. Wherever it was easier to see her tears, because by the end you realize that she's so strong not a good life, and cycle of what is happening on the screen, which followed her life. It durability and is a very sad diagnosis of modern society, which for some reason is not can take their counterparts. And in this fight only she man, it a fantastic woman, and other all-just — ugly.
