Tootsie by Sydney Pollack (1982)

Dustin Hoffman, Bill Murray, Jessica Lange, Geena Davis…

This was the next film that Hoffman did after his Oscar awarded “Kramer vs. Kramer”. The role is strikingly different from anything he did before. Comedy. When (still) attractive male actor turns into a tragically unattractive masculine woman actor. To get a job, transforms himself physically to discover an entire new world he was totally oblivious to before.

I watched this film for the first time in early 1980’s on a black&white micro-tv made in East Germany. Over 25 years later, with a surprise I recognised some of the scenes that I had carved in my memory as magnificent. And they did not lose any of the charm and magic. Interestingly, the film did not age and is still a great entertainment. And probably will be for at least the next 25 years. Cult classic.
