When relying on social scripts to survive the social world, it's not easy to go off-script. Especially if you're obsessed with German dive bombers and just want to date a girl.

Inside MY mind!
13 February 2020 | by polleke-1See all my reviews

Mind My Mind gives a surprisingly accurate view of the inner workings of an autistic mind. The main character (Chris) is a young man with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and we follow him in his struggle to fit in a neurotypical world. The view inside his mind is depicted using a mouthless creature in a library of memories that has to organize incoming stimuli and process them, and create behaviour using pre-formed scripts. The "Mind" character can rest when a soothing, repetive task (fib) is performed. If there is an overload of stimuli the "Mind" character cannot cope and has to be calmed down with a fib.

We see the brother of Chris trying to get his brother to act more social and vist parties and flirt. This is out of the comfort zone of Chris and he has to cope with an overload of stimuli, new feelings, and his mind has to device new scripts to cope with new situations.

The movie is set in the Netherlands, with some recognizable architecture, but the language is English. This gives the movie a more universal and international feel.

The animation style is estaetically pleasing, and not too smooth / obviously computer generated which gives the movie an artisanal feel. The movie was a an upbeat feel to it even if the story is not always a happy one.
