Goofs

You can see when the nurse unlocks the door to the ICU that it says "ortopædkirurgisk afdeling". Meaning Orthopedic surgical ward so unless Alfred's got a very dangerous fractured arm he might need to go to an actual ICU. See more »

Change your mind,change your story,change your life
21 March 2014 | by anagaminSee all my reviews

when a little child boy who is suffering from an incurable disease and he is going to die in a few months,thinks "heaven looks like a boring place", how can you change the way he looks into the life after death? how can you help to make this journey a little more comfort for him? This is the story of Helium. Sometimes I think to myself hopes are some kind of lies, but I guess sometimes it is crucial to change our mind, the way we look into the problems makes us, makes how we are going to live,and how we are going to die, or maybe how we are going to live after this life! So I believe "Helium" which is another intent for Heaven-but it seems to be more fun,more fantastic and imaginable for a little kid who loves balloons and bored from a mental,abstract world called heaven- did a good job to make the audience rethink about the way they look into life and make them more precise about choosing their perspective to the life's events.
