Tiresia Film Poster


French drama, based on the Greek myth of Tiresias, who was both male and female at the same time. Played by Clara Choveaux, Tiresia is a young Brazilian transsexual living in a rough neighbourhood on the outskirts of Paris. Refined aesthete Terranova (Laurent Lucas) becomes obsessed with Tiresia and kidnaps her, dragging her off to the country. However, removed from her regular supply of hormones, Tiresia gradually begins to change back into a man (where he is played by Thiago Telès). Terranova becomes disgusted with him, and in his rage cuts the boy's eyes out. Blinded, Tiresia wanders the countryside until he is found by Anna (Célia Catalifo), a young girl who decides to take care of him.
