One-Second Film Review: Sabine Bernardi’s German film Romeos (2011)
Director: Sabine Bernardi
Screenplay by: Sabine Bernardi
Starring: Rick Okon, Maximilian Befort, Liv Lisa Fries, Felix Brocke, and Silke Geertz
A wonderfully-made film about a young female-to-male transgender falling in love with a gay man. The film shows a love that transcends not only the body but also gender. Rick Okon is a splendid actor. He is able to show an FTM transgender’s frustrations with his body, family, and society. Wonderful, simply wonderful.
