Based on the true story of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo and his caregiver Abdel Sellou, this inspiring film follows the lives of these two men in service and friendship, through character that’s tough and touching.
Directed by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, and staring François Cluzet and Omar Sy, The Intouchables has won several film festival awards in its native France. It was also a French selection for the 2012 Academy Awards and a 2012 Golden Globes nominee for Best Foreign Film.
The story is exceptionally easy to follow with subtitles, due in part to so much of it being portrayed through the characters and cinematography.
Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, this film is rated R, due in part to cursing and some suggestive language.
The Intouchables offers moments of faith in humanity, humor, and a few surprises that may delight an audience looking for just that.
