This movie was great! It was heart warming, funny, and touching, I think the critics reviews are way way off, they must have watched a different movie? A human story with no special effects or booming audio, it is dubbed but you get lost in the story so you don't notice that! A must see if you like a pure movie and story!

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 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!!

I had no idea it was a sub-titled film, but the ads I'd seen for it looked really good. My friend thought it reminded her of the 80's movie "Dying Young" with Julia Roberts as a care taker of this young man that was going through chemotherapy. Hard to describe, but I laughed, cried, tense moments... great feel-good movie!

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!
