who never seemed to learn from mistakes, in her obsession with being a man. Beside that, her concept of man was developed in a back culture of poverty and endless carousing to stop feeling dissatisfied. Maybe this could have been believable if the culture had been so isolated that there was no such thing as movies or tv. It pulled me in only because so peculiar , with lots of tense events. Pretty gruesome. Doubt one could learn anything enlightening from this movie... The movie did little to understand this weird mentally ill person. Her times of tenderness and attraction to Laura were a continuing part of her fantasy, that one knew would lead nowhere, so it seemed more like just escapism, like one might into a type of cocaine high. Very sad the vicious cycle of poverty and ignorance and mental illness. Sad to see people who are not trying to do what we all need to do: accept what we are physically, hormonally genetically, mentally, etc, while still striving to improve and live satisfying lives without harming others... and maybe even contributing so that the world becomes a better place.
