HASTA LA VISTA
2011, Kinepolis Film Distribution, 115 min, Belgium, Dir: Geoffrey Enthoven

Jozef, Phillip and Lars (Tom Audenaert, Robrecht Vanden Thoren and Gilles De Schryver) are united as friends and isolated from their peers for the same reason: the three young men all have special needs. When Phillip hears of a Spanish brothel that caters to people with disabilities, he schemes up a road trip that will get the trio laid and also assert their independence from parental control. Of course their independence still entails a caretaker, which adds Claude (Isabelle de Hertogh) to the mix, a gruff, stocky woman who only speaks French. With Claude's help, the three travel from Belgium to Spain in a quest to end their virginities in Geoffrey Enthoven's endlessly pleasing comedy. Winner of the Grand Prize of the Americas Award and the Audience Award at the 2011 Montreal World Film Festival. In Dutch with English subtitles.
