Movie Info

Seven-year-old Ludovic (Georges Du Fresne) announces to his startled parents, Pierre (Jean-Philippe Écoffey) and Hanna (Michèle Laroque), that he is in fact a girl. His parents first view his newfound taste for girls' clothes and toys as a harmless phase, but as other neighborhood parents grow concerned -- particularly Albert (Daniel Hanssens), Pierre's prudish boss and the father of Jerome (Julien Rivière), the boy Ludovic has decided he wants to marry -- they take steps to "cure" him.

Audience Reviews for My Life in Pink (Ma Vie en Rose)

  • Jan 13, 2012
    Sweet film about a boy who desparately wants to be a girl. An interesting study of gender issues at a very young age. That little chap is charming.

    Off-beat gender bender that's at times funny, at times poignant, and always entertaining. <i>Ma Vie En Rose</i> manages to vilify our collective ignorance without insulting our sensibilities. A truly remarkable film. <br/><br/>*High marks for set decoration and cinematography as well as casting and direction.

    Magical, lyrical, funny and touching. Perfect little film about gender identity, gender roles, acceptance, tolerance and coming of age.

    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. <a href="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/?action=view¤t=MaVie.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj203/goji9000/MaVie.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
