Rating: 4 stars out of 5 Given Name Family Name The French sensation thats been sweeping the world all over off their feet has finally arrived and it Email Address really doesnt disappoint. Since its release, the film has won awards all over the world and broken many box office records, becoming the second highest grossing French film ever after ‘Amelie’. The movie stars Omar Sy as Driss, a young reckless male and Francois Cluzet as Phillipe, a rich quadriplegic. Driss applies to be Phillipes care giver with no intention of actually getting the job. Instead, hes there to get his third refusal signature – which will entitle him to his benefit. Phillipe tells Driss to come back the next morning for it, however Driss surprisingly finds himself to be the candidate chosen for a trial period of the live-in caretaker job. Thats the basic gist of it and then the two proceed to teach each other a thing or two about living. Its not the worlds most complex plot, but it gets the job done.http://movies.insing.com/feature/the-intouchables-movie-review/id-8a673f00 Page 1 of 4
  2. 2. ‘The Intouchables’: A French delight - Singapore Movies - inSing.com Movies 2/15/13 5:44 PM Its a little reminiscent of ‘Driving Miss Daisy’, but as that was set in the 1940s instead when segregation was quite rampant; this on the other hand doesnt have as much of a racial focus. Instead of focusing on labels, its really about how camaraderie and a little support from someone can motivate a person to change the way one lives. The films script is a real crowd pleaser. The jokes and gags between Driss and Philippe are constantly laugh-inducing throughout the movie, right until the end. The two completely different characters share great rapport on screen and that makes for some really funny interactions between the pair.

The film is a special blend of all-around pleasantness that also possesses heartfelt and sincere leading performances from its actors. The fact that its based on a true story doesnt hurt it. Detractors will point out the lack of originality or subtleness but for two good hours, we had an awesome time soaking in the humour, pranks and all the slight welling up of the eyes.
