Something has always kept me from watching Intouchables , and if only I'd kept listening to my intuition, it would have saved me two hours of pure annoyance.

Because what an incredible turn this is. This is mainly due to the excruciatingly annoying character of 'Driss', a noisy, criminal lowlife from the banlieus who is presented as a kind of noble sauvage. But his obnoxious and antisocial demeanor, at which the unsuspecting viewer should smile affably, is so patently unsympathetic that you only wish Phillipe put on a lifelong act and get up from his wheelchair in the third act to kill the thief of his precious egg on a horrific scene. way to learn a bloody lesson.

Unfortunately it will not come to that.

Terrible film that proves to me once again that you should always follow your own taste, and not those of the bunch of fools who praise this rubbish to the heavens. It may sound snobbish, but I make no apologies for developing my taste to desire more than this level of knack has to offer. And the film's undisguised hostility to anything that hints at intellectualism is downright sickening.

Of course, the bow doesn't always have to be taut, but Jesus, does the string have to be that slack?

Driss [Omar Sy] is a rudderless, unemployed man who can only keep his benefits if he fulfills a job application requirement. That's why he has a job interview with Philippe [François Cluzet], a wealthy man who is paralyzed from the neck down and needs intensive care. Driss shows no sympathy for Philippe, but he is looking for someone who does not see him and treats him like a sick person. And so he decides to hire Driss, against the advice of his current assistant Magalie [Audrey Fleurot]. Philippe introduces Driss to Chopin, Schubert and Berlioz, Driss introduces Philippe to Kool & The Gang and Earth, Wind & Fire. The rest is easy to guess in this feel-good film that could so easily have degenerated into sugary sweet sentiment. But Sy's engaging play and the exemplary interplay with Cluzet are guaranteed to put a big smile on your face. The real Philippe and Driss from this Capra-esque story are briefly seen in the epilogue of this globally successful audience favorite.
