Le sexe des étoiles -- Film Description:
"Camille is a typical 12 year old in most respects. [...] Her family life, however, is anything but typical. Years earlier, her father abandoned Camille and her mother to live as a woman. When he returns as Marie-Pierre, complete with high heels, ruby red lips, an elegant coiffure and breasts, Camille glories briefly in the warmth of the longed-for reunion with her father. But inevitably, her idealised image of what a father should be and her nascent self-image as a woman collide with the reality of the tentative, love-starved caricature of a woman her father has become."
-- David McIntosh
