Review

Our Score
Warmly humorous and thoroughly uplifting, this tale about the triumph of human spirit over disability is a true treat, making it a worthy companion piece to the likes of Aaltra, Untouchable and Rust and Bone. Belgians Philip, Lars and Jozef are best buddies. Philip is quadriplegic, Lars has terminal cancer and uses a wheelchair, while Jozef is blind. When they hear of a Spanish brothel that specialises in catering for the disabled, the friends circumvent the concerns of their families and doctors, hire a minibus, secure the services of a larger-than-life lady driver-cum-nurse, then head south in search of sun, sea, sand and sex. Mirth, mayhem and some sadness ensue. Inspired by the BBC documentary For One Night Only, this is part road movie, part romance and part tale of friendship - and all are worth watching.

Summary

Three friends who all have physical handicaps organise a holiday to Spain. They tell their families they are on a wine tasting tour, but their actual goal is to find a brothel that specialises in clients with disabilities and lose their virginity. Comedy drama, starring Tom Audenaert, Robrecht Vanden Thoren and Gilles De Schrijver. In Dutch, French, English and Spanish.
