Clôture - Hoje eu quero voltar sozinho (The Way he looks)

Leo's world, characterised by his over-protective parents and best friend Giovana, is turned upside down by the arrival of a new student in his class (Gabriel) with whom he falls in love. Determined to pursue his passion, he must assert himself and take control of his life. Here, the theme of discovering one's homosexuality which has been addressed many times in film, is not used to condemn intolerance or backward societies, but to address a wider issue – the emancipation of a boy who is treated like a child because of his handicap. This film, which was given a Teddy Award at the latest Berlin Film Festival, succeeds in conveying the feelings and wonderfully fiery emotions of its extremely endearing characters.
