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 little gem really surprised me. I thought it will be a heavy drama with a touch of humor. Honestly, I don't remember what was the last time I laughed so hard:) Great movie, and the fact that it's a real story, made it even better! I've never heard of Omar Sy, but I think he'll be the next best thing on the screen in the near future. Let's hope the people in the film industry will see this and realize what real comedy and real talent is!!

This was by far the best movie that I have seen in the past 10 years or so. A feel good, thoughtful movie that hits you in the heart. I laughed, held back tears and sat in awe till the end. It is a French film with English subtitles... but that fact is NOT distracting at all. It is very easy to keep up. The acting was amazing and the characters are very likable. A kind of 'opposites attract' movie with several lessons and beautiful scenery throughout. A MUST SEE for any age over say, 13. Some language and weed use. No biggie.

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.

It was fantastic, I highly recommend this movie! The acting outstanding. You laughed, you felt empathy you cheered, your emotions were high and it was brillantly executed. It is one of the finest foreign movies I have ever seen. I haven't enjoyed a movie in such a long time it was just wonderful to see heart and soul and so much caring for the characters. Thank you for a most enjoyable and enteraining time at the movies....RB
