Definitely a five star movie. You will love it. It has English subtitles but I felt it did not take away from the movie at all.

Hello Bob Weinstein wherever you are! Thank you for bringing this French film to the USA! Omar Sy is the find of the year! I went to see this movie reluctantly don't like subtitles, but I was amazed and totally enchanted with this movie. As I do with all great movies, I went back a second time to see what I missed - and this time everyone that was there the first brought all their friends - there was a long line, and at the end of the movie everyone clapped! If Omar Sy can do this to the older and sorta frumpy women in Irvine, he can do it to the millions of others that won't see it because it is an Independant! If he hosted the Academy Awards - the world would swoon! Great, Great story! My favorite part? When he danced to Earth, Wind and Fire! : )

An Amazing Film!

This is truly an amazing film with a simple plot about a crippled man who needs to hire a personal assistant. It sounds very ordinary and this theme has been dealt with in other films of the past but not like this film! The acting in this film is so great and each character brings multi-dimensions of human life to the story. I was captivated from the beginning. The crowd I saw it with here in New York ALL applauded when it was over, for a long time! That is rare because this film is such a great blend of pathos, struggle, humor, delight, despair, all within the relationship of a crippled man and his personal assistant. I do not want to spoil any suprises or best moments because they are all the best. Go and see it, trust me! ASAP!

It was FUNNY, charming, moving, touching... Fabulous! Loved this movie from start to end. PS. I read the critic review by "Variety"... whoever wrote the review should quit their day job. The author called the movie racist. What?? I'm a Black woman. There was nothing racist about this movie. Yes, there were a few parts where the attitudes and perceptions of characters were exposed and challenged. So what?? You can pretend that those attitudes don't exist in the world if you want, but uhhh.. they do! This movie is a wonderful story about finding love and friendship in a totally unexpected place. And those are the types of stories we need to overcome mis and pre conceptions that all of us have about other people. Great movie.
