The mystery called Autism

- LISA: ''I think i would recognize it in most cases. But I'm sure that there are some types of autism you can't recognize. I know the film <<Rain Man>>, it's about a guy who has autism''
- ALINE: "I don't think I would recognize autism immediately. It depends on the person who has it, and how strong he has it. I already knew the movie <<Rain Man>>. It's about Charlie who finds out he has an autistic brother."
-JOLIEN: "I have a cousin who has a severe type of autism. So I think it isn't that hard for me to recognize the symptoms. I didn't know the movie <<Rain Man>> but after seeing the trailer I think it's a lovely movie."
