Tom Hooper never fails to amaze me.

Speechless till the end of credit title. And I think Eddie Redmayne deserved an Oscar. (Yeah, Sorry Leo!) His acting as a women/transgender so natural and specta. Deliver brilliant performance!

Its about Danish artist; Gerda Wegener. A painter and painted her husband, Einar Wegener as a lady in her painting.

Karena di lukis as a lady sama istrinya, dan lukisan tersebut mendapatkan pujian dari berbagai pihak membuat Einar bener-benar merubah diri: female appearance and named himself as Lili Elbe. Keduanya masih suami-istri saat itu and off course, happily married. Awalnya its like a game. Lili just alter ego of Einar and Gerda always encourage him to explore his characters untuk kepentingan lukisannya. Sampe pada akhirnya Einar lebih nyaman menjadi Lili. Nah loh?! Dan naksir cowok. Nah loh (lagi)??!! Adalah Hans Axgil temen masa kecil dari Einar yang kemudian mencintai Lili, and its the begin of love triangle between Einar (Lili) – Gerda – Hans.

Its a brave film. Kontroversi udah pasti karena based on true story. The story is amazing, I love part of film when all characters try to find way out of problem. At the end, Einar choose his real way as a Lili rather than being repressed and Gerda who had to face reality: her husband is not the same anymore. Very complicated. Very emotional.

Yeah, This film told about Lili’s groundbreaking journey as a transgender pioneer.

For some reasons like moral depravity, the film has been banned in Qatar, UEA, Kuwait and other islamic countries. Indonesia? Hopefully, not!

NOTE: Baca-baca di Wikipedia ternyata Gerda juga Lesbian. Dan beberapa artikel yang saya baca mengatakan jika pada akhir kisah mereka ternyata Lili dan Gerda tetap hidup bersama sebagai Lesbian couple and menetap di Paris. Sepertinya saya harus membaca sejarah hidup mereka lebih banyak lagi mengingat informasi yang sangat simpang siur mengenai real story of them.
