Product Description

Product Description

À la suite d’un accident de parapente, Philippe, riche aristocrate, engage comme aide à domicile Driss, un jeune de banlieue tout juste sorti de prison. Bref la personne la moins adaptée pour le job. Ensemble ils vont faire cohabiter Vivaldi et Earth Wind and Fire, le verbe et la vanne, les costumes et les bas de survêtement… Deux univers vont se télescoper, s’apprivoiser, pour donner naissance à une amitié aussi dingue, drôle et forte qu’inattendue, une relation unique qui fera des étincelles et qui les rendra… «Intouchables».

------------------

An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, Intouchables has broken box office records in its native France and across Europe. Based on a true story of friendship between a handicap millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), Intouchables depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.

Amazon.ca

Driss (Omar Sy), a Senegalese man living in a Paris slum, applies for a job as caretaker to a wealthy quadriplegic, but all he wants is to get his paper stamped so he can get benefits. Despite his lack of qualifications, he lands the job because of his attitude: Philippe (François Cluzet), the quadriplegic, wants a caretaker who will look at him without pity. As Driss reluctantly learns to move, feed, and clean Philippe, the two men discover a blunt but vital humor that not only bridges the cultural and class divide between them, but gives Philippe a renewed joy in life. It's easy to see what made The Intouchables such a massive success in France; the movie has the sweet sincerity and uplifting conclusion that make for a classic feel-good experience. The chemistry between the two leads is undeniable, and Sy--who won the French equivalent of the Oscar for his role--is a dynamic and charismatic performer, while Cluzet's understated performance conveys Philippe's frustrations. The movie doesn't dig too deeply into the struggles of life as a quadriplegic or the struggles of life among the inner-city poor, so when The Intouchables ends it's not likely to leave a lasting impression, but that doesn't get in the way of its immediate charm and warmth. --Bret Fetzer

This DVD is advertised as "Bilingual" which usually means that the subtitles will include English - but this DVD does NOT. Adding to the error is the "Product Information" which does not include any info regarding subtitles (which are French only).

J'ai vu ce film au cinéma et j'en suis ressortie ravie et touchée. Un véritable petit bijou, un « feel-good-movie » nouveau genre que je recommande sans hésitation! Une quête commune, s'évader de la vie, ou du corps, qui les tient prisonniers, unit un aristocrate tétraplégique (François Cluzet) et un assisté social (Omar Sy). Entre eux, naîtra une amitié sincère, insoupçonnée. Omar Sy possède le don de la comédie; les scènes surprenantes et loufoques se multiplient, dépassant largement celles visionnées dans la bande-annonce. Quant à François Cluzet, il est tout simplement attachant, génial! Les deux font preuve du naturel attribuable aux grands acteurs.

One of the best films I have seen in a long time. Based on a true story, this movie is moving, uplifting, and very, very funny. All the actors are impeccable; Sy in particular is really outstanding.
