affectionately brilliant
23 March 2014 | by aretelSee all my reviews

This short film exudes of young innocence that is not just adorable to watch but is also brilliantly filmed and provides a fresh perspective of blind love.

The three young actors, Ghilherme Lobo (Leo), Fabio Audi (Gabriel) and Tess Amorim (Giovana), where convincingly charming, passionate and well suited for their roles.

This is a story of a blind high school student Leo, who has developed an attraction for a new classmate Gabriel and the jealousy that ensues when he reveals this attraction to his platonic girlfriend Giovana. The script, written by Daniel Ribeiro is brilliantly unique, well written, simple and effective, and allows the audience to connect with Leo and his affection for Gabriel.

The only downside to this short film is that it could have been longer and shown how the relationship between Leo and Gabriel progressed and the effect it would have on Leo's "girl" friend, Giovana.

A true gem of a short film and a must see.
