Absolutely adorable and entertaining
31 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

This mixture of a movie and documentary perfectly articulates the emotional roller coaster ride for a mentally disabled person in coming to grips with the emotion to rule them all and the physical needs that come along with it.

Seeking proximity and the one for life, Enea does not seem to shy approaching and imagining a future with even the most beautiful of women while actually never having had much physical contact to one.

Confused about how it would be so hard to find a loved one and what that actually means, Enea and his friends who try to helping him along his way go on a journey in search of what had been intangible and imaginary at best.

The acting is superb and the story entirely charming and entertaining all the way from beginning to end.

An absolute highlight at DOK Leipzig, 2013, crowned by the actors and producer entering the stage at the premiere here in Germany.

European independent film at its best.
