Very funny and entertaining, the actors are top class, Omar Sy is very funny like in his French TV show and François Cluzet is an excellent actor as usual.

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.

This film surprised me so much. I expected to see a socio-economic political commnetary on immigration in Europe, and was pleasantly surprised, instead. This story is one of a friendship as it unfolds, is challenged, breaks even, and resurrects. A true example of synergy, the whole being great than the parts. The friendship greater than any of these two men and their personal challenges. I would have liked more of a statement...you know what I think about statement films ... and I thought this film would have been prime opportunity to make one. But hey, someone else is going to have to make that film. I didn't miss not having a Meet The Press moment, and that's a testament to the story. A great film. Go see it today.

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.
