Leonardo is a blind teenager searching for independence. His everyday life, the relationship with his best friend, Giovana, and the way he sees the world change completely with the arrival of Gabriel. (x)
There is the trailer of the movie:
Giovana is Leo’s best friend. They spend their afternoons at the pool, awarding points for the level of their boredom and just hanging out. Leo is rather self-contained; even his schoolmates’ barbs can’t dent his sense of his own independence. This blind fifteen-year oldwants to take control of his own life. The arrival of a new pupil, Leo, at school prompts Leo to reassess his daily routine. As naturally as Leo becomes aware of his feelings for Gabriel, the more he allows himself to feel unsettled by his friend’s tentative advances. The winner of the 2008 Crystal Bear has the protagonists of his first feature-length drama orbit each other in an emotional universe of fierce attractions.
The Way He Looks, is a Brazilian movie who came from a very popular short film called Hoje Eu Quero Voltar Sozinho – “Today I Want to go Back Alone”
It was directed, written and co-produced by Daniel Ribeiro, and stars Ghilherme Lobo, Fabio Audi and Tess Amorim, reprising their roles from the short.
Peccadillo Pictures acquired the rights to The Way He Looks and has planned to release the film theatrically in the UK in November 2014
You can watch the short film right here, we have A LOT OF DISPONIBLE SUBTITLES, SO PROBABLY YOUR LANGUAGE IS COVERED, AND IF IT ISN’T, THERE IS ALWAYS THE GOOD OLD ENGLISH.
Swim in cuteness and teenage love from boys in a culture you probably know about but yet don’t ( yes, trust me, I am a brazilian speaking *-*)
As a brazilian I can say that I am proud about this.
