Uri Klein Haaretz Caution doesn't prevent the movie from sliding into realms of kitsch, even if it's a kitsch that tries to disguise its tracks beneath a cinematic veneer of gentleness. Jan 10, 2018 Full Review José Martín El antepenúltimo mohicano A film where the fascinating chemistry of its main characters stand out, as well of the subtle way to tell a sentimental story that leaves such a sweet taste in the viewer. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3/5 Nov 2, 2016 Full Review Hannah Brown Jerusalem Post Everything in The Sense of Wonder may be just a little too good to be true, but it's intelligent escapism. Oct 27, 2016 Full Review Luis Fernando Galván En Filme An unoriginal story about of a widow that "returns to life", exhausted by the daily difficulties. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 21, 2016 Full Review Fernando Santoyo Tello Cinema Movil A pleasant experience with an excellent photography and a great cast of actors.

Peggy H My husband and I are both retired Special Ed. Teachers. We both have had experience working with persons with Autism and Asperger's. This movie accurately portrays what bring on the "spectrum" can be like and we admire the actors for doing such a great job. The story is poignant and credible. We wondered if it was based on an actual event. Finding a comfort level where skills can blossom is what every Special Ed. Teacher hopes to see happen for such students. We know of many success stories ourselves. We highly recommend this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/01/24 Full Review Alexandra H Enjoyable movie with beautiful cinematography and terrific acting! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/20/24 Full Review Le W 37-year-old woman, widowed, mother of two. That sounds hard enough. The Angle of the movie is really refreshing and healing. The meeting between Louise and Pierre, it's kind of crazy. Why Pierre has a sudden crush on Louise. There is no process of getting along between the two people, and Pierre has a good feeling and a sense of security for Louise. Pierre's autistic. He should have a stress reaction to being hit by a car, but he's looking at flowers. These are the things that movies don't make sense. Healing type is still very strong, if there are difficulties in life, after watching this movie really want to stick to it, do not give up, there will always be a solution. Pierre and Louise's love, as a whole, was too much of a surprise. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review angelo k The movie turns out to be a newer version of the "Rain Man", being on the one hand really calm and lovely but on the other hand it offers much fun and comedic value. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Serge L Fascinating story of an asperger man accidentally meeting a woman, both made for each other. Well done and convincing. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/16/20 Full Review Read all reviews
