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.

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.

Sometimes people will meet who enrich each other's lives, sometimes a movie gets made about it that will enrich yours.

This story about a wealthy paralyzed Frenchman and the highly unlikely man he hirea to care for him is phenomenal...you really shouldn't miss it. The acting is fantastic, with a great cast of people you've probably never heard of. Driss, the carer, is explosive...like a puma ready to jump on life and eat it all up. He's so vital and strong, but also sensitive in such basic ways. This is not a chick flick. It's a fabulous human story anyone would like. Go see it!

One of the finest movies I have seen in recent time. The movie is intelligent, moving without being maudlin and often funny. The acting overall is excellent as is the cinematography. I am very pleased to have seen it.
