Tiresia (2003)

Tiresia (2003)

Genre: Drama
Director: Bertrand Bonello
Starring: Laurent Lucas, Clara Choveaux, Thiago Telès, Célia Catalifo 

Based on the ancient Greek myth of Tiresia, a blind prophet who was both woman and man. Here, Tiresia is a Brazilian transsexual living with her brother in the outskirts of Paris.  After she is kidnapped and blinded by a psychopath, she gains the gift of seeing the future.


Bertrand Bonello's Tiresia, is a dark, twisted, and haunting tale.  Certainly one of the most interesting films I have seen.  Backed by excellent performances by the three lead actors.  Unusually yet effectively, the main character is played by two different actors while the two antagonists are played by the same actor.
