A thoroughly charming, sweetly funny high school crush story.

a blind teenage boy who is over-protected by his parents and his good friend Gi is longing for some independence. when Leo and Gi welcome new boy Gabriel as a friend the balance of relationships changes as both are attracted to the new boy.
the film is gently dramatic - even the bullies don't get out of hand.
the final scene carries the most energy and freedom.
rated 92% on RT and 8/10 on IMDb - sources that rarely agree in my experience.

I saw this priceless film at the Music Box. I didn't want it to end.

It's a real gem and solid crowd pleaser.

Sweet story. Loved the way they shut up the bully at the end.

Great film for anyone to watch. The producer ran a 20 minute teaser version for a year everywhere on the Internet. (including social networks). Main characters are very appealing and play the innocent role. Happy to see Fabio Audi in newer movies. He is wonderful in person too.

This little “coming out” high school picture has its charms. Among them, the young and appealing cast, who are extremely comfortable in their roles. But those roles are not particularly surprising. There’s the awkward teen girl best friend, the adorable blind boy, the new, hot boy in class, the class bullies, the privileged girl with too much freedom, etc….in fact, the milieu of Sao Paulo provides no exoticism whatsoever, and we could be watching any YA picture with a slight bent. For a more interesting take on this subject, there are any number of better, more complex movies made over the last thirty years. However, though unsurprising in any way, it is also not an unpleasant way to waste 90 minutes, and at least ends happily. (Though the director/writer avoids any last moment encounters with the blind hero’s overprotective parents---a thorough cop-out, I’d say).
