A Perfectly Normal Family
Emma sees her father Thomas changing into Agnete. The safe and 'perfectly normal' family life becomes unstable. Can Emma still call Agnete 'dad'? What will their close father-daughter relationship look like now? How can she handle her confusion, sadness and anger? And how can you properly shape a changing, new family while the rest of the worlds watches full of critique and suspicion?
In this debut, film director Malou Reymann displays the most intimate, vulnerable and heartbreaking moments in the lives of the charachters perfectly, basing their emotions and experiences on her own: she grew up with a father becoming a transwoman herself. The film won the VPRO Big Screen Award at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2020.
"Treft steeds de juiste toon in deze dan weer grappige, dan weer wrange, maar altijd levensechte familiegeschiedenis."
