This comedy-drama broke all box office records in France. It’s a hugely entertaining real life story about friendship, trust and human possibility. The basic plot is that Phillippe (François Cluzet), a rich quadriplegic perversely chooses black, ex-con Driss (Omar Sy) as his carer and learns to enjoy life again thanks to Driss’s fresh, unpitying approach to his troubles.

- The film was heartfelt, warm, poignant, comical, and also very dramatic at times. It also wasn’t your common Hollywood action violent movie and it was French. I liked it
- Heartwarming. Very funny too
- Brilliant, Something wrong with the sound – couldn’t understand a word! Subtitles saved the day. Phew!
- Too many stereotypes to be really interesting and the ‘humour’ was laid on a bit too heavily
