A great movie, a great director, and great performances.

It's hard to even talk about LGBT matters in a country like Chile, so is exactly right there the significance of Sebastian Lelio's work. The characterizations are so well performed by the actors and actresses, that you can feel the anger and frustration of Marina, the love that Orlando feels for her, the everyday struggle of Marina in a society that rejects her sexuality, the hate from Orlando's family, etc.

Is necessary a movie like this, is necessary a more open-mind society, is necessary to stop discrimination, is necessary to stop the hate.

A fantastic woman, is ready to show the audience that there is no differences between a transgender person and a heterosexual one, the strong main character of Marina, will make you feel her never-ending fight to gain some respect, and how bad we, as society, make her feel.

Thanks to Sebastian Lelio for bring this taboo to the light. Excellent work.

Heartbreaking, beautiful

The LGBT themes of this movie are a backstory to Marina's real, profound grief over the death of her lover, Orlando; as his ex wife, son, and brother strip her of Orlando's possessions of value. This film is so deeply tragic and relate-able to anyone who has lost a loved one.

An advocacy film that leaves me cold.

A Chilean woman's old-enough-to-be-her-father lover dies suddenly. She has trouble with his hostile family, who wants her out ASAP, and bars her from the funeral. When she tries to attend a function, she is ejected and roughed up. Meanwhile, a female detective is worried about her being abused, while a male police officer insists on addressing her by her legal, male name.

From the TIFF Q+A, the director had spent time doing research to create a transgender story. However, while the elements are new to Chile, they have been explored already in North American films. He further gave me a problem by casting his chief consultant, a post-op trans woman, in the role that clearly calls for a man or pre-op trans, as she is repeatedly referred to (directly or indirectly) as "a man in a dress". The are a couple of scenes where she appears topless with definitely female breasts. Recommended only for those in "the choir" of the trans cause, or who are more willing and able to suspend disbelief than myself.
