CGiii Comment

One of the many military trans-stories...once you have seen one, you've practically seen them all.

This has been spliced together with home movies, the obligatory transition video diary and pedestrian-level footage. What this story desperately needed was a smidgen of directorial flair and imagination. Something to hoist it above the humdrum! Sadly, that was not the case.

The(ir) Blurb...

It was as Virginie that corporal Vincent Lamarre enrolled in the Canadian Army. As he did his coming out to his superiors, he surprisingly founds his hierarchy back him unconditionally as his family did. The movie relates Vincent's sexual transition with the support of his chain of command. What defines a man? His testosterone? His penis? His warrior spirit? The way people look at him?

« P’tit gars » est le premier film documentaire qui propose de suivre pas à pas le parcours d’une femme militaire de carrière qui va devenir un homme.
Doris Buttignol explore un point de vue inédit sur la transition sexuelle, en abordant le sujet de la transsexualité sans voyeurisme, ni préjugés, à mille lieux des représentations courantes…. Dans ce documentaire sensible, rigoureux, Vincent apparaît comme un personnage charismatique au discours très articulé, porté par son intime conviction d’être un homme dans un corps de femme.
