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!

This movie is definitely a "must go"! The film could have been maudlin, but instead is very funny and uplifting. I sat through it with a ridiculous smile on my face and that was when I wasn't laughing out loud!

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.

I took my 16 year old (American Film Indocrinated teen -exposed only to multimillion dollar crap that can be marketed into video games) and he said, "Mom, I think this is one of the best films I've seen. Why don't they make more films like this?" Money, of course. Leave it to the Europeans to make adult dramas that are much desired and needed. We are left to Focus Films and Magnolia Films and gems like this one to keep us going. Must see. Magnetic and charming.
