C'est tellement drôle qu'on ne peux pas le voir sans rigoler. Oui, il y a des gaffes qui m'a fait pensé que le directeur n'a jamais passé un instant chez une famille africaine. Mais, au fond, ça fait rire encore de plus.

I laughed my head off: this film is full of all kinds of humor: broad pratfalls, verbal play, and hysterical situational comedy. And I couldn't take my eyes off the major characters. They are able to convey more with their faces than most "movie stars" can with their whole bodies.
This is a 5-star film:
The writing is fabulous and funny.T
The acting, directing, and cinematography are first rate.
Without revealing too much, Intouchables takes you to a world you might never enter, and enables you to dwell in it with both humor and empathy.

I took my 16 year old (American Film Indocrinated teen -exposed only to multimillion dollar crap that can be marketed into video games) and he said, "Mom, I think this is one of the best films I've seen. Why don't they make more films like this?" Money, of course. Leave it to the Europeans to make adult dramas that are much desired and needed. We are left to Focus Films and Magnolia Films and gems like this one to keep us going. Must see. Magnetic and charming.

My husband and I went to see Les Intouchables yesterday, and it far exceeded our already high expectations. Two very strong actors, a script that will make you LOL for at least half of the movie, and a moving plot from a true story.
Absolutely fantastic! We highly recommend it.

sad,funny,great acting. a definite oscar contender for the best foreign film and oscar nominations for the two main characters. just loved it. i did notice that the audience was mostly middle aged and older tho' i think young adults could gain some insight into the challenges that some people face in life.
