  • 瓦特利亚传奇剧情简介
      Indonesia is the country with the biggest population of Muslims in the world. Even though the local transgenders, the "waria", seem to be tolerated by the public, they actually live on the fringe of society. Tales of the Waria tells the story of Tiara, Mami Ria, Suharni and Firnman (who have all refused to change sex as demanded by Muslim precepts), and their tragic struggle to assert their identity and their desire for love. Starting from the stories of the four waria characters, analyzing the complexity of their lives, filming in night clubs and beauty salons, American director Kathy Huang deals with topics which are often ignored by western filmmakers. She explores the relationship between Islam and transgenders, the socio-cultural situation of Indonesia, the issue of AIDS and the lives and struggles of those who have chosen to be neither men nor women.

    瓦特利亚传奇评论、影评、观后感
    Clyde  2014-06-05
    印尼全球穆斯林最多的国家,却生活着一群男身女相又女心的人,他(她)们叫瓦特利亚。他们所以能够貌似与周围的人和平相处,与印尼接受伊斯兰教前的传统有关。他们甚至可以和其他男人结婚,他们也有人最终选择异性婚姻与生儿育女,但他们其实还是孤独的——他们还是边缘人。
