Beautiful Film
31 January 2010 | by cameronsmith92See all my reviews

I saw this film at Sundance 2010 and it quickly became one of my favorites for its heart and realism. The plot resembles a typical love story...Daniel meets Laura at work and over time they discover that they have much in common, enjoy each other's company and start to date outside work.

The difference is that Daniel has Down's Syndrome while Laura does not and that makes their relationship different. In addition despite missing a chromosome Daniel has a university degree and an intellects view of the world which he is able to use to both surprise and teach those around him.

The audience is similarly challenged as the film explores the need all human beings have for love and companionship and the danger of stereotypes when looking for that love. The Directors Álvaro Pastor and Antonio Naharro have managed to get superb performances from the entire cast and I wished I had the foresight to ask them how much of Daniel's humor was scripted for it feels as natural as any conversation I have had today. I sincerely hope to see this film again!
