A Fantastic Woman: the sad, all too plausible story told by Sebastián Lelio is yet another evidence that mankind still has a long way to evolve. Some aspects of the story feel forced, but reality is cruel to women like the main character, making it entirely possible that the film was, in fact, rose-colored in its perspective. Daniela Vega, alas, is somewhat inexpressive as an actress, even if she has a beautiful singing voice. It’s a pity because hers is a very strong character, who deals with all the obstacles thrown at her with raised chin. Director of photography Benjamín Echazarreta presents many poetic and interesting images throughout the film.
