Ben is different. His life is a universe to itself, where he plays his favorite on line computer game Archlord avidly, trying hard to train himself for the real world he lives in. The harsh world of a technical school is for him a daily kind of hell. As the horror of being a daily subject to bullying grows, Ben devises a plan. Then Scarlite comes into his life, the girl he has met in his on-line game. That wasn't part of the plan...Written by
This movie makes a thing visible, you even can't picture in your imagination
I have to admit that there the last years are a lot of small countries in Europe that embarrass me about the film culture of my own country (Germany), that only does the same formats in just new colors. This time it hit me very hard with this movie from Belgium. What a deep message about social act of mankind how sad how strong. To put the whole thing in the frame of a computer game, worked out perfect to describe the two worlds in one. What an important share for making autism visible for the world. The actors are great. Greg Timmermans first movie appearance is worth an Oscar and even that the girl (played by Laura Verlinden) is so beautiful, the taste of reality in this movie is not lost.
