Colegas (Buddies) is a road movie that shows the simple things in life in a poetic light through the eyes of three young people with Down syndrome, who love movies and work at the video library of the institution where they have always lived in. One day, inspired by the movie "Thelma & Louise", they decide to run away using the gardener's old car to have a freedom experience. They travel to uncommon places in search of three simple wishes: Stalone wants to see the sea, Aninha looks for a husband and Marcio needs to fly. During this search, they embark on several adventures as if life was just child's play.Written by
Buddies (Colegas): Three funny and competent actors with Down syndrome, who interpret Stalone, Annie and Rudy, the film also features a great cast as Lima Duarte, Marco Luque, Juliana Didone, Otavio Mesquita, a curious impersonator of Raul Seixas and with several young Down syndrome in the supporting cast.
Biggest winner of the last Gramado Film Festival (Best Film, Best Art Direction and Special Jury Prize), the film Buddies lives up to the awards and the public good in theaters: With narration by Lima Duarte, excellent soundtrack Raul Seixas , good script, direction and competent actors, the Road Movie (very reminiscent of the magic and charm of the first films of Trapalhões, early in his career) entertains and moves viewers. One of the highlights of the film (at least here in the south) is to see the protagonists on the road, crossing Brazil by Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul with his red Karmann Ghia in pursuit of their dreams. Simple things like seeing the sea, fly and marry becomes strong and striking in memory of all who attend this adventure ... An inspiring story of friendship, love and hope, that it will bring good things in the future. (Who knows, an Oscar nomination in 2014, and the first Brazilian Oscar ...)
Sean Penn has already given its support to Ariel. Let's see if they repeat the hug, a day at the Oscars.
