About the film

Pino is a mechanic and a rally car champion who decides to become a woman, naming himself Beatrice. As a transgender, he meets Marianna, a nurse from Romania who is taking care of his elderly mother. Beatrice and Marianna fall in love. Fighting the prejudice of established society, both dressed as brides, the two of them manage to get married in Rome. Consequently Beatrice becomes a father to Marianna’s son, Daniele. In high heels, Pino/Beatrice continues to work as a mechanic and to pursue his passion for off road racing. This love story is a ride through the life of a a very unconventional family living in a very conventional country, Italy.

Piękny i wielowymiarowy film! Dobry scenariusz. Ciekawa rozmowa z reżyserem. (gosia_j)
Ciekawa historia pokazana we wzruszający i zabawny sposób. (bananowo)
Perełka. Ciekawa i wzruszająca historia, ale przede wszystkim fantastyczni bohaterowie - gdyby nie istnieli, należałoby ich wymyślić. Bardzo przemyślana i dopracowana struktura. Czuć, że film zrobiony z sercem i pasją. (nicebastard)
