Audience Reviews for My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose)
Off-beat gender bender that's at times funny, at times poignant, and always entertaining. Ma Vie En Rose manages to vilify our collective ignorance without insulting our sensibilities. A truly remarkable film. *High marks for set decoration and cinematography as well as casting and direction.More
Writer and director Alain Berliner has made a fresh film about what it takes to survive in a world where people still measure others by codes of conformity, prejudice, and small-mindedness.
The incomparable Ludovic stands his ground. Ma Vie En Rose isn't necessarily trying to advance an agenda, and it's not a movie about homosexual issues. It's about someone who is convinced he's something that physiologically he's not. Maybe it's just a phase he's going through, maybe he'll grow up to be gay. The movie doesn't really address that. It's about what is going on in Ludovic's head right now.
