Overview

A fantasy-prone transvestite who is looking to make the leap to transsexual status imagines that he is the star of a lavish universe punctuated by elaborate musical numbers in director Ramon Salazar's stylish sophomore feature. Adolfo Monica Cervera is a die-hard romantic who currently shares a cramped apartment with Tomas Miguel O'Dogherty. Though he was born a man, Adolfo prefers to go by the name Marieta, and is currently stashing away the money needed to shed the male appendage that is holding him back from full womanhood. Sex-change operations don't come cheap, though, and in order to raise said money Marieta must first land a decent-paying job. Though one successful interview does find Marieta hired as a railroad-station cleaner, the exhausted worker immediately falls asleep on the job and is quickly fired for doing so. It is in his sleep that Marieta truly comes alive, though, and after falling asleep during a conversation at a nearby market, the dreamland Ginger Rogers is pulled to safety by handsome stock boy El Reponedor Pablo Puyol. As an intensely sexual relationship begins to develop between Marieta and El Reponedor, the aspiring transsexual discovers that even if he himself doesn't appreciate his one defining male characteristic, there are others out there who most certainly do.

    I hope you're not easily shocked...

    This was a great film, in my opinion. Part musical, part comedy, part raunchy romp with a splash dark humor. What else would you expect from a movie about a pre-op transexual who moonlights as a prostitute and lives with a dwarf who scalps opera tickets and pretends to play an ostensibly stolen cello? As it is a Spanish film, you aren't going to get your standard American "happy ending," although the ending was satisfying and "happy" in its own right. At times, the plot seems a bit "lost," but in the final moments the director manages to bring it all together. The fun musical numbers and obscure laughs throughout the film are enough to keep you engaged even in the areas where the plot seems buried - if you're into that sort of thing. All told, an entertaining movie about love, sex, self-acceptance and finding humor in dark places. A good watch!
