      Good love is to save each other?

      One film friend said that this is a movie for a normal audience, with many adjustments to the real autism and Asperger's character. I wholeheartedly agree. Further, in fact, they should not be any different from us, emotionally, in the spiritual world, in the pursuit and expectation of love, as well as the love of friendship and companionship, which can be found in everyone.

      To tell the truth, apart from some behavioral eccentricities, the hero and heroine are not sick. They are...

      Sweetie, you can't disappoint me.

      Because whatever you are, is exactly what i want.
      But, sweetie, is loneliness making us crazier, or craziness making us lonelier?

      The film is actually just borrowing some people with mental disorders to tell a love story, but it's worth watching if the performance is in place and the soundtrack is good .

      And the scene that moved me the most was actually Izzy and Donald sitting on the Ferris wheel in the amusement park. Sadness and pain, anger...

      Distinctive but still lacking in power

      Taking the love of abnormal people as the theme, the idea is novel. There are also a few more exciting episodes, such as the male protagonist wandering in the garage, using the license plate number to relieve sadness, which is more flavorful. In addition, the section where the male protagonist brings his boss home for dinner is also quite exciting. Before the end, the male protagonist finds the female protagonist to talk to. The heartfelt scene is also good.
      I remember reading a passage...

      Asperger's is not a mental disorder...

      It's a very good movie. In my heart, I can line up with Rain Man and Forrest Gump~~ Although it tells about Asperger's love story, there will be more or less our own shadow here.

      Another thing to say: Asperger is not a mental disorder! ! !

      Asperger's is a relationship and communication disorder that begins after age 6...not autism, nor a mental disorder!

      Seeing a lot of people saying that Asperger's is a mental disorder, collapse... It's a type of pervasive...

      Two lonely souls also look forward to more beautiful possibilities

      Movie for Josh Hartnett.
      The slightly frowning look in "Pearl Harbor" completely killed me. After watching "Mozart and the Whale", it turns out that he still has acting skills.
      One is obsessive about numbers, one is afraid of the sound of metal hitting. In fact, something like this exists in all of us, but they are more sensitive than us.
      When I was a child, I was especially afraid of the sound of metal hitting. It was a nightmare, a helpless nightmare. Donald would keep...

      The story is simple, but it was heartwarming to see Donald and his group discussing whether or not to call Isable. The hero and heroine know each other's aspergers and performances, so even if they're over an hour late, just say I knew you screwed up. How can a normal person communicate better than...

      A strange existence The director is indeed using the technique of a genre film to shoot a very untyped love scene. In the end, I cannot consume this film with the mentality of watching a genre film, nor can I use the theory of the author's film to dissolve it. Second Don't let me watch the hard autism movie Top is Ben X Is I Can't Understand Their...

      A friend and I recommended this movie, and to be honest, I didn't really like it. Aside from the good music, the story isn't bad, but, can't...

      14-28. The male pig made a resolute proposal for marriage and was still chasing after him, which made me wonder if this is another YY with a strong female screenwriter. But it turned out to be a male...

    Movie plot

    People with Asperger's Syndrome have the same withdrawn and shy personality as autistic children, but in terms of intelligence, they are no worse than ordinary people. They are thoughtful and sensitive in terms of language and graphics. Has a very good sense of sensibility, our protagonist Conrad (Josh Hartnett Josh Hartnett) is one of them. With a bird, he has super arithmetic ability, and his life is simple and meticulous.
    Conrad is a...

    Movie quotes

    • Donald Morton: I'm late, which is ironic, because I started out 9 hours and 23 minutes early.

    • Gregory: Can I give you some advice?

      Donald Morton: Can I humanly stop you?

      Gregory: Stick with the group. Compared to us, you're a god. And, uh, next to Isabelle, which you will *never* be again, you don't come off so hot.

    • Donald Morton: Excuse me. Do you know when the next bus, uh 217, runs?

      Man at bus stop: Sorry.

      Donald Morton: I'm chasing someone.

      Man at bus stop: By bus?

      Donald Morton: Well, it's important.

      Man at bus stop: Important enough to take the bus?

      Donald Morton: Yeah. My girlfriend left me because I wanted to get married and she wanted to stay just friends.

      Man at bus stop: Ah. The slower this chase, the better.

      Donald Morton: Yeah.
