[REQ] 20.000 especies de abejas aka 20,000 Species of Bees (2023)

An eight-year-old is suffering because people keep addressing the child in ways that cause discomfort. They insist on calling the child by the birth name Aitor. And the nickname, Cocó, even if less obviously wrong, does not feel right either. During a summer in the Basque country, the child confides these worries to relatives and friends. But how can a mother handle her child’s quest for identity when she is herself still dealing with her own ambivalent parental legacy?
Basque director Estibaliz Urresola Solaguren’s debut feature is a sunny drama. This wonderfully sensitive work is carried by heart-wrenching performances from newcomer Sofía Otero as the little girl in search of a name and Patricia López Arnaiz as her conflicted yet loving mother. But, just as a multitude of bees ensure nature’s diversity, supporting roles are no less essential for the film’s heroine, and a largely female environment shows her some of the diverse ways in which it is possible to be a woman. By adopting more than one point of view, Urresola is respecting the incredible complexity that is gender identity, and touching on one perhaps less obvious aspect of transitioning: your mentality.

And some images from the final event, who Sofia Otero got a silver bear as best actres (she is now the youngest person who got a bear in the history of the Berlinale).

I give the movie 4 of 5 stars. I was a bit confused about the backround fact that it's going about a boy who would be a girl and it's played by a girl, but well, she's acting so good in her role, that she got a silver bear from an international jury in the competition (that was a real surprise!!!). Anyway, it's a lovley film with not so much surprises but a nice story and great selected characters. So you made nothing wrong to watch it, when it's out for public.
