This is a fantastic movie. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. The main actors give very strong performances; you really feel part of this moving story. It is both funny and touching in its portrayal of two people who help each other overcome life's very difficult problems. .

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.

Really strong on message and just made you yell out "YES!" Even reading subtitles did not bother me and the style did not drag it out which happens so frequently anymore. I laughed out loud more than once - great movie. Very funny and heartwarming movie with reality on board.

Looking for a warm, fun and thoroughly entertaining movie? This is it. The only catch, and it's a minor one, is that the dialog is in French with English subtitles. But don't let that stop you. Where this film's concerned, reading subtitles is minor and nearly unimportant. You will laugh out loud and if you're not touched by these performances there's something very wrong with you. You simply can't go wrong here. See this movie. It's worth every cent of today's overly inflated ticket prices. You definitely won't be disappointed.

From the preview I knew that I was in for a treat and I have to say I was thoroughly impressed from beginning to end. The acting, directing, and cinematography are excellent. Not one poor performance in the entire film. Also, the film shows the beauty of France in architecture, food, the Pyrenees, and the beautiful French countryside. Definitely a film to see with a beautifully written (and often humorous) well choreographed story.
