I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this movie. Would it mainly be some sort of sexually-focused movie, something poorly acted, something cheap? It had good reviews, and I speak French and Spanish, so I thought that this might be interesting. Knowing Spanish didn't help all that much, because the non-French dialog was in Portuguese, but the subtitles got me through those parts.
You can read about the plot elsewhere, and it might be a good idea to read or refresh yourself with the myth of Tiresia, the blind seer. It is the pretext, if not the context, of this movie. What this movie really explores is the duality of life: male/female; priest/pervert; old/young; taker/giver; and finally, alive/dead. I found this movie fascinating in that nothing was totally as it seemed, that each person or situation held its opposite. Tiresia embraced that duality and it gave him/her sight. She/he was happy not to too narrowly define her/his gender, and it was the embrace of this dichotomy and duality that attracted everyone to him/her. Someone who lives in opposite worlds at the same time comes to see beyond what most people see, and so Tiresia was sought out.
A complex movie indeed, and one that I would highly recommend!
