Based on true story, “Les Intouchables”, the film that that broke box office records in France, tells how a millionaire left quadriplegic after an accident, hires the unlikely carer, Driss, who is from the poor suburbs and just out of prison. It is described as "a feelgood buddy movie" of friendship across the race divide.
“Intouchables” was a sensation because of good writing, acting and directing but also its subtle, British-style humour (Christophe Narbonne, a film critic at the French magazine Premiere)
An irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility (rottentomatoes.com).
