No one can accuse Xavier Bermúdez of cowardice. This sometimes funny, sometimes thrilling first movie can bring us an old idea about cinema: everything is as true as we could make it to happen. León has Down Syndrome but he's not a boy and suffers all the problems that an adolescent could have (girls, school, relationships with his relatives...) which is perhaps the first approach to that point of view that i have ever seen in a film. Olvido is another young regular girl and wants to live her life... though she doesn't know what she wants. The two characters perfectly know what they don't want to feel left, lonely, hopeless and to lose control of their lives but we are not alone in this world. We have brothers and sisters
