Intouchables

Posted at 16:11 on 30/5/2012

Based on the true story of Philippe Pozo di Borgo, Intouchables is a great French movie, directed by Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, starring François Cluzet (Philippe) and Omar Shy (Driss). The movie sketches the differences between a stately, rich, disabled, French man and a poor, stealing, black-skinned man, but this is not meant to discriminate. It shows that you cannot judge on the outside: While others warn the disabled man that his helper is black-skinned and may be dangerous, he puts his complete trust in him, and they become good friends. Intouchables is a great movie about trust and friendship, and worth seeing!

The movie starts with a thrilling piano music. We are watching a speedy Maserati, driving very fast. An old men at the passenger seat, a black-skinned man behind the wheel.. Voilà, they are Philippe and Driss. As the police follows them, they make a bet if they will be caught. When they are, they make a bet if they will get an escort.. And they do! An escort! When they start driving the music starts playing: the swinging song September from Earth, Wind and Fire, so we already have the good feeling before the movie even has started.

Then we go three months back. Driss, a poor, violent, black-skinned man, has to get an autograph that he tried to apply, so he can get a payment. Later we hear he recently got out of jail. When he is waiting for his turn to meet an disabled man, who needs someone to help him in his daily life, Driss, the only one on Nike Air Max between al the suites, shows a bit of his reputation, by putting a golden egg into his pocket. When it is his turn, he turns out not to want the job, but an autograph so he can get a payment. But, as they say fortune favours the bold: he gets a job, a beautiful room and a good income.

At first, he has some trouble with it, having to massage Philippe, and to shower him.. But as time goes on, they become friends. As you can understand, the brute black man and the rich, stately man differ a lot at issues as music art and woman, and this causes some hilarious scenes. For example, Driss loves Kool & The Gang, Earth Wind and Fire, while Philippe listens to classical music. Driss cannot imagine why someone would pay 11.000$ for a painting which looks like a bleeding nose, and he does not stop thinking about how Philippe will have sex when he cannot feel anything between his toes and his neck. Driss learns Philippe to smoke weed, helps him to meet the woman he has been writing to for six months, helps him to grow up his adopted daughter, and much more. Philippe is happy because this brutal man has no mercy for him, and seems to forget that he is disabled every time again. Driss is happy because he has a beautiful room, and earns enough money. Meanwhile he tries to turn on the beautiful red haired secretary, but without success..

While the names Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano never appeared to me, they both have a great history in French movies, but none of them seems to have made it to the Netherlands.. Until now! Their movie Intouchables is hitting the cinemas, and has success. Intouchables is a beautiful movie about friendship and trust, saying we should not judge on the outside. To keep the original voices, which I think is necessary in every movie, Intouchables is shown in French. François Cluzet and Omar Shy play very well. Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano have done a good job with this one.

Intouchables is based on a true story, which I find very enchanting. We see how Philippe Pozo di Borgo must have had problems with his disability, but also the great trust he always had put into men. Of course the movies shows a lot that has not really happened, but still I feel that a movie impresses more when it based on a true story, and you know the main lines have been the same in real-life.

And it is not just a story, it is an amazing, thrilling story about disability, about trust, about the differences between different people. A great set-up, amazing stage-setting, a lot emotion, good actors, nice music..

That a French movie is shown in French is also a good point, because it keeps the original voices. And this is also to my advantage, practicing my French while watching a nice movie. The exchange helped a lot with that, because there I learned that ‘Putain!’ means something like ‘Shit!’, and Driss is saying ‘Putain!’ all the time.

François Cluzet (Philippe) and Omar Shy (Driss) also did a very good job, they played very well. One point I liked most was their facial expressions, these were really good.

The music was also very nice, and always fitting the scene. When they feel good, and everything is fine and everyone is happy, we hear Earth, Wind and Fire, which I think fits the mood pretty well. But also when it get emotional, we have a thrilling piano music, loading the emotion. This piano music comes back often in the movie, sometimes with some variations, and that is something really nice I think.

Also the switches between different emotions are done very well. It is not that we switch in one second from emotional to Earth, Wind and Fire, there is a quiet transition between.

Intouchables is a really great movie which you should not miss. It contains everything a movie needs: a good story, some action, emotion, good actors, nice music, and  piece of truth. To practice your French, to learn about the life of disabled people, or just to enjoy yourself: Intouchables is a good laugh, suitable for everyone. Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano have done a good job, and you do not want to miss it.
