"...MA VIE EN ROSE offers gentle fantasy, and a little hard reality..."
Smart young Ludovic is the delight of his upwardly-mobile middle-class parents--until he becomes convinced he's a girl trapped in a boy's body, that is. His outward expressions of identity, which include wearing dresses and starring in a classroom performance of "Snow White," put a strain on the family unit but seem absolutely natural to him. Cutting comedy from first-time director Berliner, who balances commentary on gender roles with an honest sense of childhood whimsy. An international festival smash, and the recipient of the Best Foreign Film Golden Globe.
