Synopsis: Dorina believes she is a lady incarcerated inside a male body. She’s got herself a flourishing career, albeit in an illegal cosmetic surgery business. She is a mother figure to Hero, her eight year old nephew. She acts as a devoted wife to Uno. Between her job and her family, Dorina feels that she is one lucky woman. Until Uno falls in love with another tranny (transvestite).
The Positive: "Quick Change" is funny in spots and sensitive in others. Its edgy theme will take you to the world of Filipino transvestites--their obsession to beauty and their complicated lifestyle. The director (Roy) effectively conveyed the social relevance of the film in such a natural flow. Aside from revealing their private parts, Mimi Juareza and Junjun Quintana are both revelation when it comes to acting.
The Negative: It has a simple premise that you can actually tell its story in a short film.
