The Way He Looks 12 rating

A blind student’s relationship with his best friend is tested when he falls for the new boy in school, in Daniel Ribeiro’s beautifully realised romance.

Drama 2014 92 mins

Director: Daniel Ribeiro


A love triangle with a difference emerges in Daniel Ribeiro’s beautifully realised romance. High school student Leonardo is blind and has always relied on his devoted best friend Giovana. But their closeness is tested by the arrival of handsome new boy Gabriel, with whom Leonardo becomes infatuated.

Adapted from his own short, Ribeiro’s funny, charming and joyous film cleverly reimagines the lexicon of onscreen love, as it depicts a romance that blossoms in the absence of sight.
