at first sigh, moralistic. but it is little more. a pledge for discover different common things. to give to the other a second chance. to help him be yourself. sure, it is not great. but it is seductive. first - for message. than - for performance. and for special sense of help. because this is its virtue - remember old things. nothing new. a young man searching his place. a not brilliant job. few Down syndrome people. shoes. a show. and success of a meeting. nothing new. but basic ingredient is measure. it is not a drama and, in fact, it is not a comedy. it is not pledge for values but it seems be a sunshine.a film about dedication and courage as seeds for miracle. that is all. because, for a period, each of us can be an Alex version.
