noble intentions
11 April 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The first scenes are very offensive . Because, not ignoring the noble intentions, the subject is too delicate and the manner to use it in this case / too simplistic. The Down szndrome persons are real special for so manz reasons. And that is the big problem about this short film. To make a film about acceptance is not easz and in this case, against the humour / the lost chromosome/ , against obvious good intentions, something remains wrong. So, noble intentions, few nice moments. And, unfortunatelz, no more.
