My Life in Pink
1997-Belgium
Directed by Alain Berliner


A lively, colorful, contemporary tale of Ludovic, a little boy who's hopes and dreams are different than those of the other little boys around him.   Ludovic considers himself to be what he calls a "girlboy" and loves to play dress-up with his mother's clothes.  When he becomes friends with the son of his father's boss, his parents are pleased to see him networking.  However, when the two boys announce their intentions to marry when Ludovic "becomes a girl", the relationship between Ludovic's father and his boss becomes so strained that he loses his job. 
The family finds their lives shattered by the community's disapproval of their son and are forced to re-locate to find a fresh start.  Ludovic's parents seek therapy for him, hoping to "cure" him of his foolish notion that his "X chromosome got lost when he was born and the Y chromosome came down the chimney instead".  The stress eventually causes Ludovic's mother to blame her son for all they've suffered, leaving poor, little
Ludovic to doubt his mother's love. 
Alain Berliner uses color and composition to stimulate the eye while presenting the possiblities of "other-ness" in a harmless, logical way.  Ludovic, played with amazing depth by 11-year-old Georges du Fresne, is a character that commands compassion.  We are mesmerized by the images of his brilliantly colored dreams and long for the other people in his world to understand his rare beauty.
"My Life in Pink" won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
