My Dearest Señorita

A black comedy on a tabu subject - sex change - that is also a fascinating, warm and sympathetic love story, with humor, pathos and a touch of the absurd. “...a deceptively simple comedy with a whole range of Buñuelesque resonances. The premise is bizarre: a middle-aged spinster suddenly discovers that she is really a man. Running away from home to assume her new role, she discovers how poorly the life of a provincial spinster has equipped her socially and emotionally. Yet again it is a film of virtuoso performances: José Luis Lopez Vazquez (long a favorite actor in Spain, who is apparently, in middle age, on the verge of an international career) brings enormous subtlety and restraint to a dual role which might invite indulgent virtuosity.”
