  • Excerpt: Driss (Omar Sy) shows up at an interview for a caregiver to a quadriplegic man for one purpose: to get a signature to get his government benefit. Turns out that Philippe (Francois Cluzet), the man seeking the caregiver has taken a liking to Driss and shocks him with a job offer. And so begins an unlikely friendship, between a wealthy man confined to a wheelchair and an uncouth, charismatic dude from the street, and trust me it's way, way better than I just made it sound.

The Intouchables (Blu-ray Review)

11 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Last year, a French film arrived on the shores of the U.S. and flew under the radar of many a movie-goer. Granted, this happens quite often with foreign films here in the States when Hollywood has a stranglehold on the film industry. Still, that’s not to say a film made abroad cannot compete with the domestic fare. Quite the contrary, as creativity is obviously not limited to borders. That’s where The Intouchables enters the scene.

  • Summary: Yogi Berra famously said, "it ain't over 'till it's over." The wonderfully human The Intouchables serves to remind audiences that Yogi was right, not just about baseball but about life. The story of a wealthy quadriplegic who rediscovers -- and in many ways discovers for the first time -- the joys of living through the companionship of someone completely outwardly dissimilar to himself is one of 2011's best films, a truly joyous picture about the bonds of friendship and...

  • Conclusion: 'The Intouchables' is an amazing movie, one that deserves to be watched over and over again. While it's not the most original film you'll see all year, it definitely stands tall on the strength of its story. The audio and video presentations are top notch, however the extras are very lacking. It would have been nice to have more in that department. But don't let that stop you from picking this gem up. Highly recommend.

  • Conclusion: Feel-good comedies as good as The Intouchables are hard to come by. Funny, life-affirming, and just artful enough, this French production is sure to brighten the hopefully soon day on which you choose to see it. Sony's Blu-ray is a lightweight affair, but the feature presentation and the film both delight enough to warrant a look.

  • Summary: Without getting into spoilers, can I just say how refreshing it was to watch a film about a physically challenged person that didn’t end on a total downer?

  • Excerpt: Detractors of, say, Wong Kar-wai sometimes theorize that his movies’ swooning, romantic dialogue only plays well to Western audiences because it’s delivered via subtitles; if not for the diluting effect of onscreen text, we might choke on its sweetness. The same goes for The Intouchables , a thick tranche of honey-glazed ham in which an unemployed African immigrant (Omar Sy) plays caretaker to a cantankerous French quadriplegic (François Cluzet).
