Strella aka A woman's way (2009)

This is a diificult movie and not recommended to everyone.
I think it's one of the best Greek films ever made.
It's about the strange relationship growing between a young mysterious transsexual and a man who stayed in prison for 15 years after a murder.
After spending some time together and falling in love, they will find out a terrible secret that connects their lives.
The plot is like a bomb in your stomach.
It's not a gay film of course as many people think but a family drama caused by wrong timing of bad luck.
It emphasizes on feelings and not on stereotypes
A statement about love, family and about "normal" not existing anymore (if it ever was).
Completing this movie without any state funding and using amateur actors was a great achievement for director P. Koutras.
