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!!!!

I went with my husband and a friend. We all liked it, it was moving, but entertaining at the same time, we laughed, they tried not to make the main character disability as the main focus of the movie, I recommend it.

It is an attention grabber from beginning to end - even though in some ways sad - how can an invalid's life not be somewhat sad - it is full of humor and bon homme

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.

Terrific! Funniest movie I've seen in a very long time! A wonderful true story blended with great acting and an enormous amount of humor! The scenes were beautifully choreographed; the directing was was outstanding.
I would say this is for mature audience as the language would not be suitable for children under 18.
