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.

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!

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.
