The problem with it is that the family makes no recourse to God or to the power of His healing touch. Certificate: 12 This take on the thorny subject of cross-dressing is a bittersweet tale of pre-teen sexual soul-searching and bourgeois prudery. Adults, on the other hand, see things in more literal terms, and are less open to fancy. She wants to set Ludo straight, so she cuts her hair to make her look like her brothers. In this world Ludovic is sort of an assistant princess, and we can see how his worship of Pam has made him want to be just like her.

Or can he? Hanna Laroque and Pierre Ecoffey are celebrating their social elevation when their youngest son Ludovic Du Fresne shocks the neighbours by showing up at their housewarming dressed as an Oriental princess. Ludovic's alternate universe is ruled by his favorite TV personality, named Pam, who dresses like a princess and has a boyfriend named Ken and flies about the houses with her sparkling magic wand. And there is a certain suspense: Surely Ludovic cannot simply be humored? God can change gender confusion. The couple, who have two other sons and an adolescent daughter, assume that Ludo, with his Prince Valiant helmet of hair and his attachment to dolls and girlish finery, is going through a phase. The comedy isn't particularly funny, while the drama lacks angst. After a particularly bad argument, Ludovic attempts to mend the situation by hiding in a freezer to commit suicide. No sooner has Ludovic learned about menstruation than he becomes convinced that a stomachache is his first period. The movie is about two ways of seeing things: the child's and the adult's. Advertisement The film is careful to keep its focus within childhood. The torment of Ludo's parents, like the revenge of the priggish neighbours, is overly controlled, while the boy's confidence in his destiny ignores the doubts other people's reactions must be sparking within him. Aspiring to both satire and social commentary, this is a film which consistently lacks the courage of its own convictions. Ludo resents her mother for doing this, ultimately deciding that she wants to live with her grandmother. Screenplay, Chris Vander Stappen, Berliner.

Publicly humiliated, the parents leave their neighborhood for another city, where the family can come to terms with Ludovic's peculiar problems.
