Since Princesa is based on true story, I could understand how transgender is struggle in the society. I think European film is quite different from the other American films that I have watched, and European is likely to focus on sexual scenes. Since Fernanda is prostitute, the mood of the film is dark. The relationship between Fernanda and Gianni is quite touching although it is an affair. Their love story adds the brightness for the plot. It is interesting to see Gianni regards Fernanda as a "real" woman even though Gianni discovers Fernanda is physically male. I think it is amazing for a straight man to love transgender woman in this deep way. In my opinion, the theme of the film is not to discriminate transgender people in the society. If the society will not judge the people such as Fernanda, they could have more opportunity to find a normal job to earn money for their need. I think this film is appealing for only adult since there are too many sexual scenes. It is not appropriate for kids to watch it.
