Synopsis

When an ex-con from the projects is hired to take care of a French aristocrat, his newfound job quickly becomes an unpredictable adventure. Speeding a Maserati through Paris, seducing women, and paragliding over the Alps is just the beginning, as he turns the world of upper-class Paris upside-down.

MUBI's take

A French box office smash, this BAFTA-nominated comedy charts the co-dependant friendship between a quadriplegic millionaire and his carer. Approaching questions of race and disability with a light, incisive hand, The Intouchables is a heartwarming buddy movie of boundless warmth and compassion.
