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

Love or not to love
25 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie was about a man and a woman who experienced a handicap in their lives and when they meet each other they fall in-love with one another. The parents of these two adults were somewhat opposed to the idea of their children getting involved which is probably considered to be the tension within this French/Canadian movie. This movie is not a Hollywood movie. It is kind of on the border of being an X-rated movie because of the sexual content, and the inferred discussion around the content. Is sexuality at times mental illness? Is sexuality as private as a hallucination is to an individual experiencing it, or are they completely split? In the movie "Girl, Interrupted" it seems that sexuality is a component of a person's mental illness, if the context dictates such. For example, if an individual is considered mentally ill, then symptoms of mental illness can include sexuality. In this movie, the viewer is left with a bad taste in ones mouth, just like when watching Schindler's List when the small girl in the red dress runs through a scene and then later on the red dress is found in a heaped pile. The implications of such a profound slice shocks any audience to the point of despair. The effect of sexual privacy and it being openly exploited in this movie has the same effect of placing the movie audience in a very uncomfortable position. Perhaps this is the intention of the film-maker - to invoke a reaction from the audience, like Michael Moore often tried to do in his movies.
