Image from the film The Special Need
Enea, a 29-year-old Italian man, wants one thing more than anything else: to have sex. The only problem is that Enea has autism, and Italy doesn’t offer any legal solutions for people like Enea to fulfill their desires. As a result, Enea sets out on a journey to Northern Europe with his friends Carlo and Alex. What begins as a search for physical love, however, eventually ends up presenting the trio with additional questions that have new, unexpected answers. In Italian and German languages with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)
