Fall 2013 December 9 in Gibsons
France 2011, 112 min, comedy/drama. French with English subtitles.
Directors: Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano.
One of the highest grossing non-English-language films of all time tells the story of the magical relationship between wealthy quadriplegic Philippe (Francois Cluzet) and young offender Driss (Omar Sy, in a César-winning performance) whom he hires to be his caregiver. Coming from a very different world, Driss has no pity for Philippe, which suits Philippe just fine. We follow them through day-to-day experiences, witnessing the growth of a dependency and special friendship as they bond.
Based on a true story, The Intouchables is a thoroughly enjoyable culture-clash drama about a friendship that transcends socioeconomic divides, effortlessly balancing gravity with buoyant, effervescent humour.
