Blindness is not a deterrent to living the life the way we want to, and part of this is making choices. Daniel Ribeiro has the knack of making films with seeming mundanity, using symbolism from habits. In this film, the walk from school is a regular activity, walking with a particular friend was the habit, then it changed as someone came along and took over the duties of the other. The film’s fresh subject was tackled in a very lighthearted manner.

The film that we have to thank for 'The Way He Looks'. In many ways this short film is even better, because the concept is still the same, and the emotional punch just as strong. It treats blindness with a sensitivity that doesn't pander, and is quite matter of fact and refreshing in that way. It's actually not about his disability at all, but his ability to transcend boundaries of who one can and cannot love, regardless of their gender. A nice juxtaposition that makes it a winner. The actors do a very good job too (they reappear again in the feature film version)
