Criticism of ‘My emptiness and I’, a stark exercise

Adrián Silvestre directs this story about transsexuality with a splendid Raphaëlle Pérez as the protagonist.

    I think of Silvestre’s film (flat, almost amateurish) as a stark exercise, a resounding commitment to superficiality, that is, to what it definitely is (in transit). I see Raphaëlle’s story as a map, with its paths and abysses, for a common transition: there are the villainous doctor, the struggling sisters or the conditional lovers, delineated characters, a surgical simplicity. Thus, ‘Mi emptiness and I’ would give an account of the wonderfully obtuse contradictions that we recognized in ‘Sedimentos’, curves through which to fall far from demarcated paths.

    Likewise, I would rehearse in the forms of intimate fiction those vertigo and complicity that can only be experienced on one’s own skin and that materialize in ‘the trans’. They are the ambivalent power of the gaze of others, the labels by flag and formaldehyde, the unacceptable distance with what is politically correct… Then, boldly, the film would recognize itself as a virtually possible estuary between the self and the others, a mirror to make peace with the images we project. Or maybe this review is just a long list

    The best: rediscovering the girls from ‘Sediments’. What joy!

    The worst: without mannerisms, it doesn’t hook the first time.
