Thread: Intouchables

  1. #1

    Intouchables

    Holy frick. Awesome. Funny, poignant, honest, hopeful. Saw it with my rowdy wheeler friends and a theatre full of blue-hairs. No joke, the median age in the theatre was about 85. It's showing at a small art theatre here in town. I am thrilled to see the joint was packed; a LOT of lessons inside the entertainment.

    We were laughing at some inside been-there-done-that-----twice gimp humor to the point of crying, I mean HOWLING -- It was hilarious -- couple of seniors turned around to scold us for being inappropriate, they were only seeing the serious -- then these folks saw the line of chairs and tucked tail and sat back down. Culture shock. It was as good as the movie.

    Find it near you, wait for NetFlix, torrent, whatever.... absolutely See. It.

    Thank you for recommending it.

    It's based on a true story Jody. Also forgot to mention it's in French with English subtitles. You don't even notice.

    KLD, I too thought his "panic attacks" were more like AD. Especially later when he describes the feeling. Sounds a lot like AD the way that I and Lynnifer and some others experience is at autonomic hypothermia. I found this to be an overall honest and accurate film.

    I wonder if this would be a good date movie? I've read about this movie in another thread awhile back, and it looks really funny and interesting. The black guy is really easy on the eyes too.

    The "cute french black guy" is Omar Sy, originally born in Senegal. He won the César Award (like the French Oscar) for Best Actor in 2011 for this performance. The film is the second highest grosses film in French history now. An American remake is already in the works.



    The other main character is played by well-know French actor François Cluzet.
