MY OTHER SON cover image
My Other Son is so beautiful and emotional because is a personal story. It is a story about a father and his reaction when facing something unexpected. The film truly captures the emotions of its characters and shows each aspect Gusti goes through during his new journey. Many parents can relate to this story and feel connected with each scene, and that is truly unique. Also, each part when the story shows bonding moments between the father and his son are so good and they really portray the key lesson of the film.

Gusti becomes the father of a beautiful, but a different boy. He goes through different emotional reactions as he faces the reality of his son and what it will mean for Gusti and his family, but he finds beauty in the unexpected.

This is truly one of the most creative, touching and unique films I have ever seen! It is a beautiful story from a parent's perspective about the unexpected having a positive outcome. This short film uses so many artistic techniques, is filled with color and creativity; each scene has a unique personal touch. Many parents will relate to the story, as it is about Down Syndrome and the realities that many go through during those first moments when their child is diagnosed. But the main point is the great relationship between the father and his son.

The film has so many different uses of camera work and techniques. All the shots are full of animation, color, techniques and an artistic perspective. One refreshing touch is the set-up of the film, as it is animated through canvas over a table, giving the idea that the father is narrating his story. This makes it feel more personal and appealing to the viewer.

The film made want to read more about parents with Down Syndrome children and how they have overcome any doubts or fears they had at the beginning. It is beautiful to see and learn how love can overcome anything, and in situations just as unexpected as this one, it is even stronger.

I loved this film from the beginning to the end. The credits have a beautiful surprise that brought tears to my eyes because I was able to watch true joy, happiness and love. But my favorite part is definitely a quote from the dad, "Love doesn't count chromosomes." This quote captures the message of the film, and is such a powerful statement. Love should be unconditional, and love should guide those who are starting this new stage of their lives.

I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 6 to 18, plus Adults. Gustavo Alonso is the director and the writer; Noem� Fuhrer and Graciela Mazza are the producers. This team has created a beautiful story with a relevant message. The message is very relevant and the fact that is a narrated personal story makes it more honest and unique. Many families will relate to having those fears and doubts in cases like the one presented, but the film can help as emotional support and as inspiration when the challenges seem overwhelming.

Sometimes with the sons, it happens as with the drawing, they do not come out as you imagined. This is Gusti's story. A father who goes through bewilderment and denial, to the most unconditional love for his new son, upon discovering that he has Down Syndrome.
