Intouchables

Intouchables

So I finally got a chance to watch Intouchables, a French film I've been waiting so long to see since I first read about it last summer (from fellow blogger and francophile friend Melinda Larson).

If you haven't already had the enormous pleasure of watching Intouchables and you love films that make you laugh, stimulate your mind and heart, and leave you feeling inspired (and you don't mind reading subtitles and hearing French slang), then you just may love this movie. It is based on a true story about two men from completely different backgrounds who form a touching and often laugh-out-loud friendship that ultimately enriches and invigorates their lives and outlook. It may even get you thinking differently about the real needs of the disabled, the price of art and the true value of blind acceptance. In short, it's a beautiful film about friendship with outstanding performances by the two leading actors.

    1. Yay, Catherine! I'm so glad you enjoyed Intouchables! Just as my post encouraged you to see the film (Merci for the shout-out), yours has inspired me to watch it again. Life-enriching friendship form in infinitely diverse way, and I am blessed by ours, my "blogger and francophile friend!"

  6. Dear Catherine, I am so pleased you watched the movie and enjoyed it. It made a hit here in France and it is nice to see that it "exports" well given the universal message it carries. A must-see, I totally agree!
