THIS IS AN AWARD WINNING FRENCH COMEDY with English Subtitles you won't even need!!!!

A rich quadriplegic, living in a mansion in Paris, requires a live-in caretaker. A young offender turns up for an interview, but he is not really looking to get the job. However, to his surprise, he is hired. The two men then develop a close friendship.

Sometimes you have to reach into someone else's world to find out what's missing in your own.

At the beginning of "The Intouchables", a caption informs us that this is "based on a true story." The Intouchables" is a very good film - uplifting, funny, heartwarming, etc. - but its strengths are unrelated to the degree (or lack thereof) of factual veracity. So cease worrying about where the narrative diverges from the record. Don't lose sleep over the racial makeover applied to one of the characters. Enjoy this movie for what it is - the kind of motion picture that can cause Champagne-like giddiness - and don't obsess over how true-to-life this work of fiction is.
