Three young guys like wine and women. They tested wine with pleasure, but the second they have never been able to taste. Under the guise of a wine tour, the three plans a trip to Spain to finally have sex. Nothing will stop them. Certainly not the fact that the first guy is blind, the second is in a wheelchair and the third is completely paralyzed.
I liked every single minute of this Belgian movie in which three handicaped friends decide to go on a roadtrip to Spain, where their main objective is to visit 'El Cielo', a bordel for handicaped people.
Although you kinda know how the movie will turn out, it's still a very enjoyable watch from start to finish mainly because the casting in this movie is no less than excellent and you can really connect with the main characters.
Even as a 'fully able' person, you can relate to their everydag problems and it makes you think even more of the American History X-quote "Life's too short to be pissed of all the time".
The movie does this without becoming pedantic, it just happens.
Good times, good fun!
Ow yeah: F*ck Ryanair!

File with the ruse of the Profane Granny - in this case the ruse of the Horny Disabled Person, taking the sting out of their sad pathetic lives and allowing us to identify without actually feeling distress. Not without humour or (of course) compassion, though the plotting is questionable - it really takes 2 days for the parents to catch up with them? - and it's all pretty glib. Exactly the kind of film that wins Audience Awards at medium-sized film festivals.
Wonderful Belgian road movie about three handicapped friends who go on a trip to Spain to visit a brothel which specialises in servicing disabled people.
This great premise is executed perfectly and mainly successful because of its great cast. The three leads are fantastic, they really make you care for them which is essential in films like this. The one who really sticks out though is Isabelle de Hertogh, she plays Claude, the carer who accompanies the boys. Her role is magnificent.
The script is on the predictable side, but the film's big heart more than makes up for that and really gets you emotionally involved. A truly wonderful film.
Come As You Are is a Belgian Comedy set around three young disabled men who are focused on one thing. I think you can probably guess what! They plan a trip from their Flemish home town to Spain for their version of a ‘lad’s holiday’.
Undeterred by a terminal illness, worried parents, an apparently anti-social driver and many other obstacles along the way. The story deals with many of the issues facing people with different disabilities and turns them into hilarity. Much of the film lies in the characters’ individual personalities and their personal obstacles. If you like laughing, this film should probably do for you.
P.S. Don’t let the original premise of this film put you off. This isn’t “The Inbetweeners” with disabled people.
P.P.S. It’s probably not suitable for children!
I saw this film as Hasta la Vista, and I have to say I really enjoyed this Belgian drama featuring Gilles De Schryver, Robrecht Vanden Thoren, Tom Audenaert and Isabelle de Hertogh. Non intrusive directing by Geoffrey Enthoven on a screenplay written by Pierre De Clercq helped to bring the real-life experience to every viewer without degrading the experience with unnecessary questions.
Mischievous story of three physically handicapped Flemish young men Lars, Philip and Jozef (somewhere between 20 and 30 years of age) who planned a trip to a Spanish brothel specializing in people with disabilities because "they do not want to die as a virgin". It is not easy convincing their parents but they hide the real reason about…
Hilarious, heartwarming but also heartbreaking coming-of-age / coming-of-dependence movie that will set your mind to think, if you're 'crippled' or not. And the funny Dutch speaking imitation scene is a classic! :-)
Hasta la Vista (original title) is a film that reminded me once again how much I love Flemish movies (next to Flemish beer, the Flemish language, Flemish cities, Flemish comics, Flemish bands and more). Hasta la Vista has been added to my Flemish favorites, alongside Crazy Love, Manneken Pis, The Broken Circle Breakdown, Loft and Ex Drummer.
Hasta la Vista is a sympathetic, fun road movie based on a true story, successfully blending comedy with drama. If you like the also Belgian (though not Flemish) film Le Huitième Jour, there's a good chance you'll like this too, because it has the same disarming charm. The actors are very convincing, some situations made me laugh out loud (especially the scene where a group of Dutch tourists are hilariously ridiculed, as I'm Dutch myself), and other moments made me wipe away a tear.
É basicamente The Bucket List com personagens que possuem limitações físicas. O humor nem sempre funciona e o final não tem muita força.
Not as fun as I hoped it would be, mainly for the part that I don't understand a single word of dutch and watched it with a piss poor, google-translated English subtitles, which ruined it even more. Don't think that it made a huge difference though, it's still not that good.
July Scavenger Hunt | Film #28, Task #6
6. A road-trip movie.
If this doesn't qualify as a road trip then nothing does. Three handicapped young men convince their parents to let them go on a "Wine tasting" trip to Spain. Wine tasting between airquotes because their actual intent is to get laid in a Spanish brothel that specialises in 'helping' handicapped people.
It's at some points hilarious, at some points annoying, because the mood in the van goes up and down. And when the mood is bad, you feel that as a viewer. They did that right. However, I liked the upbeat parts better.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
... 'cause thank God for Belgium and Belgian cinema. Also: who is the genius that came up with a story so relatable for many, yet featuring some of the most unrelatable, underexposed and under appreciated people of our world. It may be hard to fall in love when you think you aren't perfect enough for anyone or rather when you just can't see how perfect you are, but in the end there's always someone, something or some amazing film you can totally fall in love with.
Sirsnīgi, smeldzīgi un ar lieliska humora piedevu.
Another perfectly fine film. Surprised it won the Audience Award at Keswick FIlm Festival last year but it's also charming enough to understand how it could win people over.
To celebrate the achievement of getting 100 loyal followers, my 100 favorite films of all time.
And of course...
Will try to keep this list up to date with most of our Belgian (flemish) movies. Feel free to mention…
