The Intouchables

France 2011, 112 min, comedy/drama. French with English subtitles.
Directors: Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano.

Still from 'The Intouchables'

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 C├ęsar-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.
