The Intouchables

Directors: Olivier Nakache, Eric Toledano

Starring: François Cluzet, Omar Sy, Anne Le Ny, Audrey Fleurot

After millionaire Philippe (Francois Cluzet), is left a quadriplegic from a para-gliding accident and hires Driss (Omar Sy), a Senegalese parolee, as his carer. Despite their obvious differences the odd couple gels to hilarious effect. Driss is a free spirit and wastes no time in getting his employer out of the stuffy atmosphere in which he's been closeted, taking him out and about, getting him to smoke pot, introducing him to rock and roll. Based on a true story, this is a feel-good, odd couple comedy with terrific performances from Cluzet and Sy. See the movie before it gets an Oscar.
