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.

Went to see this with my husband on one of our rare nights out without children. What a great movie, Yes it is a feel good movie, but more than that is is enjoyable, not the route junk that is all over the papers, we had to search this out. Our oldest son had seen it in school and told us to go. We loved it, it was worth the money which is not something I say for other movies, I have decided to call it a coma, not a dramady, because it was a little more funny than drama, but it was so good.

This movie was fantastic. A must see for anyone who wants a close up look at human interaction that makes you both laugh and cry. This was a feel good movie and judging from the faces of folks leaving the theater everyone enjoyed themeselves. I'm going to see it again.

This is by far one of the best movies you'll see all year. You'll fall in love with both of these men as Sy's character, Drissi, makes you laugh so hard that you'll cry all while warming your heart with the care he provides to "Phillipe". It's unusual to have two men share the screen and compliment each other so well. You'll won't be able to pick who should be nominated for Best Actor and who for Best Supporting Actor given the amazing performances by both. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

Moves into my top ten best films ever..This film even though it is in French which would turn many off, is worth every second spent on this adventure. Great writing, great character. I laughed so much it hurt..Touching..these are the types of films that should be made here in the States, but no one is making them..I would see it again and again..Smart..Congrats to the filmmakers a real winner, Oscar for best foreign film for sure...if not best film!!!!
