Intouchables (2011)

Here's the story of a handicapped white man and his black handler. A true story. An unlikely friendship that grows, and goes... just like it should go! There's no real crisis here, just a story of an unusual friendship; two fates that collide and have a lasting impact on each other. The movie was actually given the name An Unusual Friendship in Sweden (in Swedish, though).

It's a bit like a propaganda film for personal assistance. When they put it like this it seems... great, really. I doubt most handlers have such bonds with those they handle, or charisma, but François Cluzet and Omar Sy sure make it seem like something else, and the former does a great job at seeming authentically handicapped - paralyzed from the neck down.

Of course they put in some romance (a girl), a little car chase, paragliding; a few risk elements that probably deviate from the true story... but since it is based upon one it still feels special. The actors do their job. The filming's good. The scripts down-to-Earth and resolute. Intriguing, entertaining, and personal all the way.

All in all a thoroughly good movie.
