Ojos Que No Ven is about a young blind boy. He is thinking about how his mother is such an angel while they are walking in the street. She leaves him for a bit, but then, after a near-accident, she brings him to another place. The little boy is then left with an old man, and the boy tells him that his mother will come back after a little while.
This film is quite a bittersweet one. In reality, it could be hard to take care of a child with a disability, but surely it comes with such sweet rewards, too. There’s also something to be said about looking through the innocent eyes of a child (especially a blind one), and how touching it could be when they ask the most curious of questions. This is definitely lovely, tear-inducing, and one to tug at your heartstrings.
I’ve always marveled at the capability of children to be so free about everything. I suppose there’s truly something precious about their innocence. What about you? Are there any characteristics you find particularly endearing about children?
