Abstract: My purpose is to re-read the absurdity and the irony of the movie and to enhance female identity against patriarchal stereotypes. The destruction of Lea’s home is described by an amusing and chaotic musical deconstruction, made of fragments that recreate new scenarios where Lea will be able to express herself. The music that goes with Lea’s destructive tendencies changes the perception of the character from awkward to aware and self determined. The destruction itself becomes creative, strong in a sense that allows Lea to affirm her identity and her talents.
