Critic Reviews of "The Way He Looks"New York ObserverApril 14, 2017
The film offers something much deeper, and what is not said makes it refreshing, and beautiful.Chicago ReaderJanuary 09, 2015
Brazilian writer-director Daniel Ribeiro displays an assured sense of tone in this debut feature, sustaining an air of fragile beauty but never once slipping into preciousness.Boston GlobeDecember 18, 2014
Ribeiro lacks a sense of dramatic construction, with the narrative stumbling about thoughtlessly, retracing the same ground over and over.San Diego ReaderNovember 14, 2014
Brazilian gay coming-of-age tale, almost quaint in its old-fashioned sweetness and gentle dramatics.Arizona RepublicNovember 13, 2014
A warm, smart and thoroughly delightful coming-of-age story.TheWrapNovember 07, 2014
"Admirable throughout is the balance that Ribeiro strikes between dewy eroticism and the contextualization of sexuality as just a single aspect of one's identity, albeit an essential one."Playback:stlFebruary 07, 2016
...the execution is heartfelt and the actors charming.Laramie Movie ScopeFebruary 05, 2015
There are a lot of 'coming of age' movies and a lot of romantic comedies, but very few good ones. This is one of those rare good ones. It isn't a great film, but it is certainly a good one.JWRJanuary 04, 2015
Anyone with a disability or who has variously challenged people in their lives (which is pretty much all of us), will enjoy the feeling of hope that permeates director/writer Daniel Ribeiro's entry into the gay, coming-of-age genre.NewcityDecember 31, 2014
Daniel Ribeiro's slightly corny, proficiently visualized coming-of-age tale floats on the strains of B&S' music as he imagines a triangle between a blind boy, his best female friend and the new boy in school.Reeling ReviewsDecember 19, 2014
Writer Daniel Ribeiro shows a talent in creating a believable YA story that is not conventional in style, content and tone and directs his young cast with a deft hand.Flick FilosopherDecember 03, 2014
A charming teen drama bursting with a warmth and compassion unexpected in the genre, and with a freshly sweet surprise of young love.
