Hello Bob Weinstein wherever you are! Thank you for bringing this French film to the USA! Omar Sy is the find of the year! I went to see this movie reluctantly don't like subtitles, but I was amazed and totally enchanted with this movie. As I do with all great movies, I went back a second time to see what I missed - and this time everyone that was there the first brought all their friends - there was a long line, and at the end of the movie everyone clapped! If Omar Sy can do this to the older and sorta frumpy women in Irvine, he can do it to the millions of others that won't see it because it is an Independant! If he hosted the Academy Awards - the world would swoon! Great, Great story! My favorite part? When he danced to Earth, Wind and Fire! : )

Sometimes people will meet who enrich each other's lives, sometimes a movie gets made about it that will enrich yours.

I didn't realize it was in sub titles. I was with my 31 year old daughter and I thought she was going to kill me for dragging her to a foreign film. We laughed through the entire movie and when it was over she thanked me for taking her. We both agreed it was the best movie we've seen in a long time.

This story about a wealthy paralyzed Frenchman and the highly unlikely man he hirea to care for him is phenomenal...you really shouldn't miss it. The acting is fantastic, with a great cast of people you've probably never heard of. Driss, the carer, is explosive...like a puma ready to jump on life and eat it all up. He's so vital and strong, but also sensitive in such basic ways. This is not a chick flick. It's a fabulous human story anyone would like. Go see it!

One of the finest movies I have seen in recent time. The movie is intelligent, moving without being maudlin and often funny. The acting overall is excellent as is the cinematography. I am very pleased to have seen it.
