Description A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old named Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

    Girls don't usually get their boobs until they're around 13.

    I disagree, I was a tomboy, I don't identify as trans, and I related really strongly to the main character. That's what's so great about this film -- a lot of people who identify differently can see themselves reflected in it.

    No, you are wrong. There is a difference between being a girl who wants to to boy things and likes typical boy things (a tomboy) and a transboy. A transboy, as in this movie, is a biological female that's gender orientation doesn't align with the gender roles assigned to his sex. In addition there is a longing to have the body of the other sex. For example, in the movie he makes a fake penis. Not something a tomboy would do, rather what a transgendered child would do.

    Nice concept. One problem- It looks ass numbingly boring.
  • Ale Raggi 2012-10-14 19:16:51
    @blgniwn Yeah it was pretty easy to get my hands on. I just streamed it there: Man its such a incredible film, way better than I thought it was going to be! Gotta see it!
  • 6TheMorgan6 2012-10-11 13:35:19
    it isn't about being a tomboy, it is about being a transboy.

    Nope. You're clearly not mature enough for YouTube because you can't detect sarcasm. Try again.
  • Judas 2012-10-10 00:03:30
    that looks a nice movie =D
  • kelenerz 2012-10-09 22:54:22
    I don't have to because I'm about to turn 13... if you don't like it, don't waste your time on me! How mature you are...
