Storyline

Gabrielle is a young woman with Williams syndrome who has a contagious joie de vivre and an exceptional musical gift. Since she met her boyfriend Martin, at the recreation centre where they are choir members, they have been inseparable. However, because they are "different," their loved ones are fearful of their relationship. As the choir prepares for an important music festival, Gabrielle does everything she can to gain her independence. As determined as she is, Gabrielle must still confront other people's prejudices as well as her own limitations in the hope of experiencing a love far from the "ordinary". Written by micro_scope

About love and endowment
23 January 2015 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Its all about love, true love that is not seeking for perfection but for the depth of the heart. If you're doing, do that with all your spirit. Sing, treat, teach, guide and love, give to your fellow man, always from the bottom of your heart. A marvelous saying, a fabulous film. I suppose that it wouldn't have been the same without the main character of Gabrielle Marion-Rivard, acting herself, illuminating the screen with her wonderful laughter in happy moments as in sad ones. To end my review, I love so much the songs, music and lyrics, that integrates in the film beautifully. Recommended especially to the sensitive between us, who can see the beauty of being different.
