Come As You Are

4

A documentary handling sex and disability in an frank, unpatronising manner

Known in its native Belgium as Hasta La Vista, Come As You Are has nothing to do with Nirvana or The Terminator, and everything to do with friendship and humanity.

Bearing similarities with The Sessions, it’s the loosely true story of three disabled men who embark on a trip to Spain in order to lose their virginity at a “specialist” brothel.

The subject matter is ripe for crass gags or patronising sentimentality but succumbs to neither.

Director Geoffrey Enthoven treats his characters as people, with a three-dimensional sense of empathy and good-natured humour.
