affectionately brilliant

This short film exudes of young innocence that is not just adorable to watch but is also brilliantly filmed and provides a fresh perspective of blind love.

The three young actors, Ghilherme Lobo (Leo), Fabio Audi (Gabriel) and Tess Amorim (Giovana), where convincingly charming, passionate and well suited for their roles.

This is a story of a blind high school student Leo, who has developed an attraction for a new classmate Gabriel and the jealousy that ensues when he reveals this attraction to his platonic girlfriend Giovana. The script, written by Daniel Ribeiro is brilliantly unique, well written, simple and effective, and allows the audience to connect with Leo and his affection for Gabriel.

The only downside to this short film is that it could have been longer and shown how the relationship between Leo and Gabriel progressed and the effect it would have on Leo's "girl" friend, Giovana.

A true gem of a short film and a must see.

Much better than the full length film

This short story has a lot of charm. Its full-length, commercial effort feels like an attempt to fit in with Anglo productions; take a look at the soundtrack and the additional, unnecessary scenes. It's more like a whitewashed parody than a good adaptation.

But this one is marvelous and it's one of my favorite indie LGBT films. It's definitely worth watching.

Short, simple but sweet

One of the best short films I have watched. What makes this regular coming-of-age story unique is our protagonist who happens to be blind and gay. If you enjoy this one first, don't forget to watch the full-length version featuring the same main actors. I slightly prefer this ending to the full one.
