Bolstered by strong, natural performances, Gabrielle's sincere look at differently abled young adults nimbly walks the line between sweet and cloying.

Writer-director Louise Archambault uses a free and easy camera style and mosaic-like editing to suggest how intensely Gabrielle responds to elements of everyday life.
Casting Marion-Rivard in the title role was a risk that paid off, giving the film its authenticity, also its imperfections, which are easy enough to live with.
If "Gabrielle" is a likable crowd-pleaser, it would be much better without the extra dollop of organic honey.
Archambault has a rare light in Marion-Rivard, whose wide smile is infectious: When she sulks, it feels like the whole world is tumbling down.
The film drags when some scenes run long. Its sentiment is appealing, though, and its sincerity doesn't cloy.
Quebecois writer/director Louise Archambault's sophomore feature is a skillfully told celebration of the human spirit.
Not to drown out the sizeable praise this got from Locarno audiences with pedantic political correctness, but there comes a point when the tastelessness from one's production methods overwhelms any goodwill one's film might otherwise have earned.
The film, weighing in at more than 100 minutes, often feels like watching grass grow because, despite the complexity of the underlying conflict, romantic love in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds...
Writer-director Louise Archambault's neatly affirmative denouement is at odds with the more uncertain reality occurring at the edges of the film's drama.
Touching heart string-puller about a mentally challenged young woman... a sincere, thoughtful rendering of that old maxim about setting free the things you love.
Archambault tackles potentially uncomfortable subject matter with both empathy and frankness.
