Belgian film takes top Montreal festival prize

Belgian film Hasta La Vista took top honours at the Montreal World Film Festival as the 35th version of the international film festival closed Sunday.

The film directed by Geoffrey Enthoven won the coveted Grand prix des Americas on Sunday.

Renamed Come as you are for North American audiences, the film follows three men in their early 20s as they embark on a journey to Spain hoping to experience their first sexual encounter.

Nothing will stop them despite the fact that one is blind, another is confined to a wheelchair and the third is completely paralyzed.

“For me this is a very human story. What I wanted to achieve is that after a few minutes people actually forget that these main characters are physically challenged. They are just human beings, like you and I, looking for some warmth, some tenderness,” Enthoven said.

“What I really want to show with this film is that all of us are living with a handicap when it comes to communicating with others.”
