Come As You Are review

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.
