Different Worlds existing in parallel, Autism and the perception of the world through the beautiful dance of animated images.
21 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Based on sketches or animated sequences by people with autistic syndromes, this film shocks with the beauty of the haunting images, opening a little window to the alternative perception present in autism, bare though of any shallow sentimentalism. The content is valid medically, and the images are of the most beautiful animated icons in films. "my first drawing was of street lights" and by that first line you hear, you know you enter a room where the natural laws don't apply, where a caress is painful, and a lullaby is a splintering scream. It is of the rare cases of films, succeeding in presenting correctly and almost fully a medical subject and still be food for the soul for a film lover.
