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.

I had no idea it was a sub-titled film, but the ads I'd seen for it looked really good. My friend thought it reminded her of the 80's movie "Dying Young" with Julia Roberts as a care taker of this young man that was going through chemotherapy. Hard to describe, but I laughed, cried, tense moments... great feel-good movie!

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!!!!

Extremely funny movie about how two disparate people end up helping each other. Only criticism I have is that the background of Driss, the companion and aide, could have been fleshed out some more. Otherwise, it's a wonderful film about how the spirit can overcome any disability, whether social or physical.
