Come As You Are
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.
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.

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!
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.
What a great movie this is! 3 disabled guys plan a trip centered by a visit to a spanish sex club which is specialised in serviceing disabled clients. A road movie which has it all: humor, painfull moments.. It will make you laugh and cry! The acting is very good and convinicing ,The fact they talk flemish is a great +
Come as you Are follows three disabled young men in their early twenties who embark on a journey to Spain, in search of wine and women…
A crowd-pleaser that cleaned up on the festival circuit, Come As You Are works a surprising and risky twist into the realm of Teen Sex Comedies—and emerges as a warm, earnest combination of humor and pathos.
Wow, that is one horribly misleading poster.
My CineVue review - www.cine-vue.com/2013/10/dvd-review-come-as-you-are.html
Simpática película que nos cuenta un viaje vital de tres minusválidos en busca de su primer sexo. Una historia de personas y cómo se van descubriendo a ellos mismos. Interesante
Uma comédia dramática muito boa.
Um filme bem interessante.
Se você acha que tem muitas dificuldades no seu dia-a-dia...
Três amigos com necessidades especiais, resolvem viajar juntos, rumo à Espanha, em busca de aventura e...sexo!
Você vai rir, pensar e talvez até chorar em alguns momentos.
Um grande filme.
Tāds patiess un līdz sirds dziļumiem smeldzīgs sirsnīgums.
Jauks piemērs kā uztaisīt ne-perdelisku un cilvēcīgu filmu par neierastu notikumu. Filma bez Holivudiskās jēlības un novazātajām standartsituācijām atspoguļo invalīdus kā gluži normālus cilvēkus ar saviem raksturiem un cilvēciskām vajadzībām.
A road trip film which holds out the possibility of the loss of virginity for three guys in their twenties visting a brothel does not sound promising as a plot. That said the three main characters each have a severe disability. The hook for the film is sex but it is much more about coping with a disability, independence and the relationship severely disabled people have with their carers.
All three leads who play the disabled characters are superb. So convincing that at the special screening I attended the sight of the actors bounding onto the stage fully abled was a surprise to me. Isabelle de Hertogh ( who plays Claude she is one of their carers) her character is…
Nu ‘Rundskop' is uitgekozen om de Belgische tricolore te verdedigen op de komende Oscaruitreiking kan de discussie in alle hevigheid losbarsten: hadden les dames et messieurs van de selectiejury moeten kiezen voor de beste film of hadden ze moeten kiezen voor de film met het meeste potentieel voor internationale reikwijdte?
Van het trio is ‘Rundskop' ongetwijfeld de beste film, maar door zijn Vlaamsche thema (Limburge keuterboeren en perfide hormonenhandelaars) heeft die film minder internationale uitstraling dan pakweg de crowdpleaser 'Hasta la vista'. Het mag dan ook geen verbazing heten dat notabelen als Brad Pitt en Jim Carrey al op een Amerikaanse remake azen.
‘Hasta la vista' steunt in elk geval op een dijk van een premisse: drie gehandicapten hebben zin…
