Boys will be boys and girls will be girls, but one child isn't so sure in this comedy drama. Seven-year-old Ludovic is happy, healthy, and good-natured, but he has decided that he's a girl. While his parents try to understand, Ludovic stubbornly refuses to listen to reason from his parents, teachers, or schoolmates. His fondness for wearing girl's clothes and frequent pronouncements to strangers that he's going to be a woman when he grows up become increasingly worrying, and things come to a head when Ludovic declares that when he's older, he plans to marry the boy next door. An off-beat gender bender that's at times funny, at times poignant, and always entertaining. French with English subtitles. Rated R. 88 mins.
