GIRLS LOST: Upcoming FTM Film from Sweden
Page 1 2
From: guest (Tim Willows) , 42 months, post #1
An intriguing-sounding Swedish film called GIRLS LOST is playing the Toronto International Film Festival. Here's a link to its page on the TIFF website:

http://tiff.net/festivals/festival15/contemporaryworldcinema/girls-lost

And here's the trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-eU4B-fnc4

It's based on a Swedish novel which I'm not sure whether it's been translated into English. It certainly seems more atmospheric and thoughtfully executed than many TG films. I'm hoping this one gets a decent release, or at least eventually becomes available through streaming or VOD.

Looks amazing. I'll check it out even if I wish it was MtF

I'm not really into the FtM stuff... but this looks very interesting indeed. I hope that if it doesn't make it the theaters here in the boonies of the USA... that it'll make it to Netflix or the like.

Thanks for letting us know about it Tim Willows!

Even though I'm not into F2M, this looks like one of the best TF films ever, and I can't wait to see it.

Here's hoping a boy also drinks from that flower and changes into a girl at some point of the film (very unlikely).

In the credits, there's a guy named Tony, and an actress listed as Tonys tjej (which translates as "girl"). They're probably just referring to Tony's girlfriend rather than his female form, so don't get your hopes up.

About the book from which the film is derived - From the website Swedish Book Review(http://www.swedishbookreview.com/show-review.php?i=365)

Jessica Schiefauer, Pojkarna (The Boys)
Bonnier Carlsen, 2011. ISBN: 9789163868665
Reviewed by Kristina Sj�gren in SBR 2012:1

Jessica Schiefauer was awarded the prestigious August Prize in 2011, in the category �Swedish Book of the Year for Children and Young People�, for the novel Pojkarna (The Boys), her second book for younger readers. Pojkarna is about three fourteen-yearold girls: Kim, who is the narrator, Bella and Momo. They are good friends, stick together and comfort each other after the usual verbal and sometimes physical sexual abuse from their male classmates. They feel uncomfortable and vulnerable inside their budding female bodies and keep to themselves in Bella�s greenhouse.

A strange flower suddenly grows in the greenhouse. From its velvety depths, the girls retrieve a syrupy substance. They taste it, and now the magic happens � their girls� bodies are turned into boys�! As they walk out into the night they are amazed by the different response they receive when perceived as boys. People look at them in a totally different way, they are no longer the Other, but instead feel free and empowered. However, as for Cinderella, the enchantment does not last long. At dawn, Kim, Bella and Momo are turned into girls again, having to go to school seriously short of sleep. But for as long as they have the flower, they can become boys when they wish.

And so, most nights, they venture into Boys� Land. However, Boys� Land after a while proves to be a land of drugs, crime and sexism. While Bella and Momo stop going, accept their femininity and start growing into women, Kim with the androgynous name cannot. S/he falls in love with the delinquent youth Tony, who despises girls. Kim stays on in Boys� Land night after night, while Tony�s criminality and flirting with Death escalates. But the flower is dying and Momo and Bella become seriously worried about Kim�

The cover text on Pojkarna reads �About the body as a battlefield and masculinity as a drug�, which pinpoints the main ideas in book. This is a novel about gender. It is about coming to terms with the fact that in our society you are sorted into the �not powerful� category of people if you happen to have a female body. What do you do when classified as �woman� � do you ally yourself with men to get part of their power, or do you liaise with women to fight for equality? And do you have to live as a woman because you have a female body? Questions like these are implicitly asked in the text, where Kim finally deals with her life in an unexpected way.

Pojkarna is written in a flowing and poetic language. There is something timeless about Scheifauer�s literary style, a semblance of fairytale prose, which suits this magical story where young girls transgress the boundaries of gender and reality. It is a fascinating and exciting read,suitable for about twelve years and up. This is actually a book that many adults would enjoy, too.

Thanks for that review! After reading that, I wonder if Tony's punishment is being turned into a girl.

Here's the part when they first transform in the original book:

Nice find guest. I'm surprised that such a long excerpt was allowed... surprised, but happily so.

Thanks for sharing the link.

From: guest , 42 months, post #9
You're welcome.

The transformation in that excerpt seems different than in the film. In the trailer, you can see a very nice on-screen morph while in front of the mirror.

When is this movie supposed to come out?

From: Bodyswap1 , 40 months, post #11
Does anybody know where I can watch this movie for free online? I have been searching around for the past two weeks and still no luck.

From: guest (Jack) , 40 months, post #12
You're gonna have to look a little harder to find it. No freebies in this life. I wish you luck and I believe in you.

From: guest , 40 months, post #13
it looks like TIFF does release some of the movies to the itunes store eventually. Hopefully it'll get released there.

From: Bodyswap1 , 40 months, post #14
I hope iTunes does post the movie on their website.

From: Bodyswap1 , 38 months, post #15
Almost February hopefully the movie will be posted to a torrent or something.

From: Bodyswap1 , 32 months, post #16
Has anybody found a copy of this movie yet? I have been searching the internet for a while now and I still can't find a copy to buy or watch.

From: guest , 32 months, post #17
Nope but good luck.

From: Bodyswap1 , 32 months, post #18
Thanks I'll need it.

From: guest , 30 months, post #19
According to their facebook page this is getting a digital release on the 13th, along with a dvd release in sweden and eventually one in america too.

Not sure what platform its going to be released digitally though.

From: Weirdoid , 30 months, post #20
Sounds like a dark drama. I'd rather have my TG in the form of a feel good comedy. Except that the scenes of a man dressing/acting girly freely that make me feel good as if male femininity is possible, get called insulting by many in the TG community. Sigh.
