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.

If I could rate this film higher than 5 stars I would. The film is compassionate, funny and so much more. I watched it every morning for 5 days as it is so uplifting. I have personal accounts that are referred to in the movie. Whether you are a carer, disabled or able-bodied this film is FANTASTIC. Very very highly recommended. The sub-titles should not put you off and the music is fab. Don't hesitate to purchase it - you won't regret it.

Just been to see this film and rushed back to see if the DVD had been released to buy it as a Xmas present for ALL the family, it was sooooo good! The film was touching and humerous and had us all belly laughing throughout. The theme may seem a bit glum and predictble, but it was anything but. Uplifting and down to earth it would I am sure it would be enjoyed by adults of all ages with a sense of humour. I'll just have to be patient, and then maybe I'll just buy myself one too to watch again and again. Clare

Really enjoyed this one. It's kinda like a cross between Romuald et Juliette, La Haine, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Tatie Danielle. Francois Cluzet is kinda like a cross between Denis Lawson and Dustin Hoffman - it's uncanny (have the three of them ever been seen in the same room?).

Photography on this film is totally great - the detail is there, but it's all unobtrusive and unshowy.

Acting - All good, Omar Sy is brilliant as Driss. Real depth going on here, and avoids the sentimental.

Screenplay - mainly decent, but the final third does a little bit too much water-treading.

Subtitling - a bit patronising. Jean Jaures is translated as Richard Nixon. I don't even speak much French beyond the usual high school Franglais, and even I picked this one up.
