Simon's Got a Gift

Orphan Simon takes his friend's identity to have a family, but living a lie is complicated.


Why watch this film?

Presented at the 24th French Film Tour in Mexico, 'The Last Life of Simon' is a French film that appears to be an 80s Steven Spielberg fantasy, which is not a negative criticism. The story follows an orphan searching for a family, although he has a peculiar gift: the ability to transform into any person he has touched. His life seems to improve when he is welcomed by a family with two other children, but a tragedy changes everything. Although the ending becomes predictable halfway through, there are several interesting plot twists along the way, and as it is a fantastical film without much pretense, it is highly enjoyable.
