This one surprised me...it was very clever and well done.
This animated film is very nice, as it tells and shows what life is like for people with Autism but it isn't schmaltzy or preachy. Plus, it's use of various animation styles and bringing Autistic kids' drawings to life was really original and made a heck of an impression as I watched.
The film uses the words of actual Autistic people to explain their daily lives, their difficulties with normal processing and gives insight into why they do some of their bizarre behaviors. The only weakness of this is that it seems to focus on higher functioning people with Autism (or perhaps Asperger's Syndrome) and may give the false impression that all people with this disorder are as communicative and well-spoken as the people portrayed in this lovely film. Still, this is a minor complaint and is a wonderful introduction into this world for the average person.
Exceptionally well made from start to finish--a great film.
