Stradao ni kriv ni dužan! Koliko ste puta čuli ove riječi?!
Šta je to što ljude tjera da pakoste drugima? Skoro svaki dan vidim osmjeh kod ljudi kada se nekome desi nešto naopako. Jeza me prođe kada čujem riječi:"E baš mi je drago što sam ga zajebao!" Vrlo su česte u Srbiji! Zar to ne bi trebalo da je sramota reći, a kamoli učiniti!?
Nikada to nisam razumio, kao što ne želim razumijeti ni mržnju, zavist, oholost itd
Jedna od stvari na koje sam izuzetno ponosan je što sam uspio da izbjegnem sve te naopake ljudske emocije!

Kada je to u pitanje branite svoju ljudskost svim sredstvima, ma šta vam govorili! Ako se prepustite tim nagovaranjma izgubiće te dijelić sebe samog! Prepoznajte ta ubjeđivanja i odbacite ih! Ne prihvatajte imperative tipa: mrzim pedere, mrzim cigane, crnce, srbe, hrvate, arape , nemce ili bilo koga! prepoznajte to i odbacite!
Ako vas to obuzme vratiće vam se ko bumerang! Tako je to u životu!

Ova priča ekranizovana po istnitom događaju nam priča o vojniku Barry Winchellu (Troy Garity) koji je želio da bude uzoran, poštovam , voljen, da voli i da bude srećan! U jednom baru se zaljubio u tranvestita Calperniu Addams ( Lee Pace ), jako stastveno i iskreno!

Pogledajte bar VISION u kojem je upoznao i obratite pažnju kakoje zaljubljeno gleda u zadnjem Calpernijem performansu.

Zezati se sa trandžama je dozvoljeno, zabavne su, al zaljubiti se to je već strašno.
Kako se na to gledalo u sredini u kojoj je radio vidite u ovom tužnom filmu.

Po meni film je odličan za prikazivanje u manje tolerantnim sredinama. Možda nekog natjera na razmišljanje o tome možemo li birati koga će mo zavoljeti? Zašto to osuđivati i šta ako je riječ o našem djetetu!? Treba li ga se odreći?



VARIETY.COM
By DAVID ROONEY

For at least half the running time of "Soldier's Girl," director Frank Pierson and screenwriter Ron Nyswaner's account of the killing at a Kentucky military base in 1999 of a G.I. emotionally involved with a transgendered nightclub performer is as pedestrian as telemovies come. But pic recovers in later reels, boosted by superior performances and a powerful final act. Sketching the relationship with persuasive integrity, the drama quietly builds a sense of indignation over policy regarding gays in the military and the inadequacy of mental health screening for soldiers trained to feed their aggression. Exposure at gay festivals seems certain in addition to a strong reception on cable.

The true story of unsophisticated, learning-disabled G.I. Barry Winchell (Troy Garity) and Calpernia Addams (Lee Pace), a Nashville drag entertainer en route to sexual reassignment, inevitably will draw comparisons with films like "Boys Don't Cry" and "The Crying Game." The fundamental difference here is that the ostensibly straight soldier is aware almost from the beginning that his lover started life as a man and still has some of the parts.





Pierson and Nyswaner ("Philadelphia") devote an inordinate amount of time to by-the-numbers scenes of grueling military training and to less-than-sensational drag numbers before focusing more intimately on the central relationship.




Dragged along for a laugh to a gay bar by a bunch of his airborne infantry buddies, Barry meets Calpernia and is immediately drawn to the exotic creature for her beauty and warmth. She in turn responds to his gentlemanly manner, marveling that a handsome straight boy would want to see her again. Despite confessing to being white trash underneath the makeup, Calpernia is an intelligent, sensitive woman, who prior to starting sex reassignment was a Navy combat medic during the Gulf War, with a higher rank than Barry.


As their tentative courtship overcomes some initial nervousness and progresses to sex and love, the relationship between Barry and his unbalanced, pill-popping roommate Fisher (Shawn Hatosy) also undergoes changes. Issues regarding Fisher's sexual identity and psychiatric problems and the exact nature of his closeness to Barry drive increasingly manipulative behavior designed to damage his friend.
