François Ozon's psychological drama about Claire, a young woman whose closest friend since childhood, Lea, passes away, leaving behind her husband, David and a newborn baby. One day Claire drops by David's house unexpectedly, and finds him feeding his baby with a bottle while dressed in his dead wife's clothes. He explains that Lea was aware of his predilection, and his relief that he's able to share his secret with someone moves both of them to create a female persona for him named Virginia. As David begins to identify more strongly as Virginia, this leads to confusing and conflicting feelings in Claire, and causes a rift between her and her husband.

If you divide this movie into three parts, first part develops well and is likable. Second half starts losing its way and starts losing the plot. The final part descends into irrational and contrived conclusion. Overall, leaves you with a wasted 2 hours.

Ozon's film on human sexuality is perhaps novel in its approach. But I find the plot confusing and full of unnecessary missteps. One of his more inferior works in my view. In French with subtitles.

This is a humorous psychological drama with man-woman relationships. I found it very interesting and I have finished watching it just because I want to know the ending.

The film explores both sexual identity and sexual orientation, two completely different aspects of human life. Being 100% straight in both aspects, I do not 100% understand the ending of the film. But this is OK as new experiences do not have to be totally understood. The thing I am certain is that all of the characters in the film are 100% human.

Did not finish - BUT still really interesting.
Why not finish? There are other people waiting for this film and we could not keep it any longer.
We'll probably check it out again at a later date and see what happens.
