Product Description

French comedy drama charting an unusual friendship. Paul (François Cluzet), a rich aristocrat and habitual thrill-seeker, becomes quadriplegic after a paragliding accident. Alone in the world and unable to care for himself in even the most basic ways, Paul employs young Senegalese émigré Driss (Omar Sy) as his carer. Despite their very different backgrounds and outlooks on life, the two men quickly form a strong bond, teaching each other important life lessons about acceptance, respect and the true meaning of friendship in the process.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 humour 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 Untouchable 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 Untouchable 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

I cannot stress how absolutely incredible this movie is. I went to a preview screening at the cinema and practically screamed from the rooftops for everyone I know to go and see it! As usual, many many people are still sadly, even in this day and age, put off by subtitles....I saw it at the cinema 3 times, I would have seen it more had the theatres kept it on longer...It is such an great movie, you honestly don't even realise you are reading subtitles. I wanted to buy this DVD to buy for pretty much everyone I know at Christmas! Those of us in the know about this movie, will spend a fortune on it as a gift, and those people will then drag their friends to see it again next year when it will I'm quite sure be re-released as it will be up for an Oscar...and the Oscar nominations/winners are always re-released somewhere! I'm hoping the Weinstein Co aren't going to make the biggest mistake of their lives by not releasing this with English subs in preparation of the American re-make...Colin Firth is no Francoise Cluzet and Omar Sy is a famous French comedian....his comic timing is second to non....the American remake may be a hit, because it is in English, but it will not be the same movie, and the original really deserves to be seen...truly!! My film of the year!!

The film, "Intouchables," is a superb French comedy, racy, challenging and hilarious. It has also done a great PR job on behalf of both the disabled and the marginalised. This edition, "Untouchable", has been subtitled and re-edited for the American market, which means that the language often jars and the structure of the film has been altered, dumbing it down for a trans-atlantic audience. The climax of the comedy (there is a romantic interest which has its own climax) has been transposed to the beginning, presumably to grab a less sophisticated audience with a shorter concentration span. This is a shame. If you have any French at all go for the French version, even if it costs a few pounds more and use the subtitles for the deaf. At least then you will be seeing the film as it was intended to be seen.

Apologies for sounding excited, but I have been waiting for this inspiring film to be released in English since I saw it last Christmas!

A paralysed aristocratic widower (Francois Cluzet) and a jobless immigrant too familiar with the criminal life of the French urban suburbs (Omar Sy) meet during Cluzet's search for an assistant capable of looking after him in such demanding state.

The demanding role is ideal for the underqualified and non-educated Sy, who's only interest is to prove he had a job interview to continue receiving his unemployment benefits. What he doesn't know, is that the man in the wheelchair is much more cunning than he looks.

In this tale of seemingly tragic circumstances, a very unusual friendship is born. The journey through this heart-warming film about true friendship, determination, and courage is accompanied by the powerful music of the talented Ludovico Einaudi. This film will make you smile, twitch, laugh, sob, reflect, and wonder at how everything is possible, especially when you least expect it.

What makes this film truly enjoyable is the fact it is based on a true story.

Whilst I hope (and know) that you will enjoy this film, may I strongly recommend listening to Ludovico Einaudi's "Una Mattina", "I Giorni", and "Earth Prelude" to name a few.

NOTE:
to date, no Intouchables DVD has been released with English subtitles in Region 2 (PAL) DVD. The US rights holder for the film should be releasing a Region 1 DVD but you would need to buy a DVD player that can play Region 1 and a TV that can handle NTSC.

Format: DVD
This film has a great deal of emotional baggage that is felt by and pushed by the audience. A true story it is said, and it does give the human relationships a positive spin.

Philippe, played by Francois Cluzet, is a millionaire who was paralyzed from the neck down in a para-gliding accident. Driss, played by Omar Sy is a man out on parole for robbery, who applies for the job of Philippe's caregiver only so he can get a signature on his application for unemployment benefits. What Philippe needs is not only physical help but someone to cheer him up. Phillipe dares Driss to take the job for a month,and off they go. Driss is irreverent and clueless at times, and Phillipe is taking quite a chance. But, then, what does he have to lose?

Off they go on adventures. Driss pushes Phillipe through the Parisian night when Phillipe has an anxiety attack. They partake of cultural activities, art, opera, birthday parties and dating. Driss has the feet, Phillipe has the mind and money. This partnership is something each of them needs, and is an equalizer. One issue is the black/white divide, rich/poor divide. Not much is said of it, but it is there, staring us right in the face.

This is a feel good film, tears at times, but the stupors is refreshing and a good time. The two actors,superb. Francois Cluzot, who plays Phillipe, moves only his face, and his remarkable features set the pace. Omar Sy the devil may care, Driss, and the man who is always moving, always looking for a woman. These two have chemistry, and the film is a good one.
