Could a special needs roadtrip movie out of Belgium possibly be funny, entertaining, and heartfelt? Yes, yes and yes. If you want to watch ridiculous caricatures of those confined to wheel chairs watch Glee, if you want to watch interesting characters confined to wheel chairs watch Come as You Are. While the story of three homely guys trying to lose their virginity isn’t exactly new or original, the way it’s told here is certainly unique; kind of like a Hangover for the indie set. This is a road comedy that works thanks to three convincing, truthful performances by its leads. Lars (Geoffrey Enthoven, who also directs) suffers from a terminal illness, and wants to have sex before dying. Paraplegic Jozef (Robrecht Vanden Thoren) fantasizes while watching women jog on the beach. Philip (Tom Audenaert) is virtually blind, requiring a magnifying glass and plenty of concentration to read anything. Against their parents’ wishes the three friends decide to visit a Spanish brothel that caters to people “like us.” In an impressive supporting role, Isabelle de Hertogh ends up as their on-the-go caregiver and driver. Fresh out of jail, she’s got a hard-love edge to her, and many of the laughs come mid-way in the film as the four trek across the country side in a van, singing, yelling, and sharing their innermost fears and desires.
