Eye opening
8 April 2010 | by LazySodSee all my reviews

A guy with a University degree in his pocket finds a job and quickly falls in love with one of the females working in the same office. While she initially does not respond to him she does start to turn around and the first fragile stage for a relation is set. So far, an all too often used story. The twist to this is that the guy has Down's syndrome.

And with that twist the trouble starts - some people disagree with the developing relation, some people have trouble accepting the fact that people with Down's syndrome can actually be quite smart and very aware of the world around them.

As a film this one is nice - it touches on inter-human relations and acceptance of these relations by the people living around the people in the relations. It is believable and just lovely.

Next to a film it's also a message, and as a message it's a very strong and clear one: don't put people with a disability in a single box and expect all of them to be the same. I must admit I was one of those people that were not aware that some people with Down's syndrome were able to get University degrees. Having had only very limited contact with a couple people with the syndrome I didn't hold it possible. This film opened my eyes though and I shall never look at them with the same eyes again.

Good stuff and food for thought. 9 out of 10 wide eyed stares
