I watched “The Intouchables” movie the other day after I heard someone say ‘You have to watch this movie!!!’, so I decided to give it a try. It is a French movie so prepare yourself to read a lot. But, don’t let this stop you from watching this awesome movie.
It is about a quadriplegic rich aristocrat that hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker. The relationship that forms between the two is absolutely amazing. Before I say more watch the trailer:
Below may contain a few spoilers, so please note.
I love how Driss breathes life into Philippe, how his lack of pity for Phillipe and he treating him like a normal person is EXACTLY what Philippe needs to get his will to live back again. I love how Philippe also changes the life of Driss, teaching him valuable life lessons. The comedy between the two is also magic, the Opera scene, the first time Driss takes Philippe out for a drive… LOL.. .pure magic! Driss is this street wise rough around the edges character, and in a rich house full of aristocrats he is sure to cause a stir and turn a few heads around.
Do yourself a favor and watch this movie! It inspires!
Joy and happiness can be found in the most unexpected places. Falling into a life of depression and loneliness can happen so quickly if we do not constantly surround ourselves with those that build us up, inspires us, and makes us laugh.
