On a remote, conservative island in Norway, 75-year-old artist Lars Kristian has created a life for himself and his alternate persona, Tatjana, a 25-year-old girl. While the local housewives and fisherman see him as a 'nutcase' living in a chaotic garbage dump, the cross-dressing Lars struggles to win understanding for his views and ultimately, him/herself. In particular, his presence as the mini-skirted Tatjana causes alarm in the locals, who find his schizophrenic personality hard to bear. Though many of them appreciate Lars' art, which is an inspiration to youngsters painting in the community, his outlandish personality is both charming and frightful. How much can these island dwellers accept of a man whose attitude is genuinely bizarre and subversive? Marc Glassman
