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.
