The Intouchables (2011)

    I thoroughly enjoyed this film! Oscar Cy deserves an Oscar for his performance as I felt his presence popped out of the screen as if he were in 3D. His dance scene tops all other modern day performances. His raw talent and authenticity to the role really moved me. I am crossing my fingers at the Academies although he is up against The Master and that will be a hard one to beat.

  32. Funniest French movie I have ever seen. And based on a true story!

  33. LOVE this movie. Left the cinema with a smile from ear to ear! One of my all time favourites!

  34. Your Blog is great! looking forward to more…

  36. A positively enchanting film in every respect. The wife and I did a double feature with this and The Sessions — another great film with similar underlying themes.

  37. I love this movie so much ! I get so excited as soon as a french movie becomes internationally renowned. The subtitles on the trailer are terrible though! It ruins half of the jokes and fails to convey the striking contrast between the two character’s diction and way of expression, (which doesn’t prevent the formation of their friendship.)

  38. I loved this movie! Too bad I cannot speak French.

  39. Wonderful movie! Het ging van huilen van het lachen naar lachen van het huilen. =)

  40. Great movie full of humor :)! I like the fact that it’s based on a true story btw 🙂
