Without a doubt the finest film of 2012.... It conquers, surpasses, breaks the barometer of perfection. Based on a true story combining pathos, pain, humor, levity but primarily a portrait of love, acceptance, inclusiveness; it sings and dances joyously to your spirit; rarely do you leave a film feeling enriched, enhanced, a better person because you have been privy, blessed in witnessing the transformative power of friendship; friendship that gloriously transcends race, class, education...."The Intouchables" touches sensitively on the vicissitudes of being completely dependent on another human being; what most of us take for granted eating, bathing, dressing, Philippe, needs, relies on Driss. Brilliantly depicted, without a fraction of bleeding histrionics , these challenges are met without loss of dignity; acceptance, without whining or ruing one's fate.
I truly loved this rousing, exhilarating, harmonious portrayal of incandescent happiness.

The Intouchables is an absolute breath of fresh air! No special effects, this is a human movie about two human beings that come together to enrich each others lives. When I saw this movie, I did not think of racial divides and was not offended at all because I do not see color. I see people and that is just the way it should be. The critics that have left their negative reviews here are over thinking this movie. I do not believe that there was an iota of racism in this movie. Just a wonderful, funny, uplifting story of humanity. Please go and you will come out of the theater feeling good, something that many movies lack these days - happiness and hope.

This film was recommended by a friend who's opinion we value on all things artistic and aesthetic. We adored it. I felt as though I had spent the afternoon with good friends, with interesting backgrounds, and whose joie de vivre is infectious. I wanted to stay for the next show, but my wife insisted that we had other pressing matters. Good news though - our daughter is coming home tomorrow, and she wants to see it with us! Ca gaz, ca roule!

We went because the fans said to go and the critics said so-so. Usually that means at least a B movie with the fan being right. They were soo right. We loved it from the openng scene through the final scene. All three of us gave it a solid 10. There was so much to enjoy about the movie we loving every aspect. The laughs were totally unexpected and came throughout.
Every character did a great job to tell a story that may have been told before but not with such humor and a different kind of love. For subtitle haters not hard to read at all. Just see it and you should agree that it is one of the best movies this summer. I hope it is in a theater near you.
