All About My Father


  1. "All About My Father": Esben Benestad runs his own doctor’s surgery in a small Norwegian town, he has written two books on sex education and contributes to a men’s magazine. He is also a transvestite working as an occasional actress and sex therapist under the name of Esther Pirelli. Young Norwegian director Even Benestad offers us a suggestive portrait of his father, conveyed with both warmth and irony. Using a combination of archive family footage and video recordings of interviews with his father and other members of the family, he creates an intimate mosaic of emotions, opinions and responses, complemented with images of Esben’s cross-dressing rituals, family arguments and stylised scenes. The director captures the history of an unusual family with an unconventional father, whose current wife supports him whole-heartedly in everything he does. In contrast, his former wife, daughter and son, in spite of their love and respect for him, criticise him mercilessly for his behaviour in a stubborn attempt to find an explanation for the events they experienced over the past quarter century. In its friendly openness and sensitive humour, the film acts as a tonic for the trauma of family life.
