A FANTASTIC WOMAN
Interview with Fransico Reyes
What is the story between Orlando and Marina?
It's a story of true love: Marina and Orlando simply love each other, and
after meeting, they have
discovered a refuge in one another. To them, the differences in their ages and
sexual cultures are
not barriers. It's inspiring to see how two beings whose intimacies are unknown
to us, and whose
lives we could prejudge maliciously, surrender themselves without hesitation,
without fear, and
without fuss. A relationship in which judgments on good and evil, on what's
correct and what's
incorrect, what's normal and abnormal, simply aren't issues. Where a space for
love is simply
made evident and recognized.
Who is Marina to him? Who is Orlando to her?
To Orlando, Marina is an inspiring being that gives him new wings with which
to enjoy life, that
connects him to his love for what is honest, and allows him to find peace,
company in her. Although he appears to be a regular man, he possesses a great
freedom, and courage that allows him to see Marina and recognize her as an
kind being. For her part, Marina, whose life is a constant struggle to live
her social setting, recognizes in Orlando the simplicity and authenticity of
this mature man, and
discovers a refuge in him: a true and calm love. The two are bound together in
their courage and
in the conscious or unconscious search for what is beautiful and authentic.
What context does Orlando have to face, and how does he defend the
Orlando has broken away from his family. With the exception of his brother, who
greatly. He has neither his ex-wife's nor his son's comprehension, nor that of
the rest of the
family, whom after his death, unleash all of the violence provoked by ignorance
vulnerability of the unknown onto Marina. But this is not an issue for him, and
he surrenders to
his relationship without considering anybody's opinion or stance. He doesn't
over whether the person he loves is a man, a woman, or a transgender person.
This honest and
authentic attitude surrounds him with a natural aura that prevents other people
with him. There's no intellectual or ideological defense of his relationship
with Marina. His great
defense is the authentic love that he feels for her.
