A Handicapped Love Story

I need help understanding this film, An Infinite Tenderness, directed by Pierre Jallaud. Here''s the description:%0D\ %0D\ "Candid and heartfelt, this documentary focuses on a physically disabled and brain-damaged boy who draws fulfillment from his friendship with a little girl who''s staying in the same hospital and is even more physically challenged. Without employing dialogue or narration, the film takes a direct and creative approach to portraying the small triumphs and tragedies that grow out of the children''s connection to each other."%0D\ %0D\ This film is beautiful and disturbing and cruel. How did it get made? Ethics experts today would definitely object because the handicapped children don''t seem to be acting and they aren''t capable of consent. %0D\ %0D\ Jallaud is a famous French director but even on Google, there are no reviews or analyses of this film. Why the blackout? %0D\ %0D\ %0D\ %0D
