Loved this movie. I wish everyone would watch it.

If you only watch one foreign film in your life. Watch this one!

Culture-clash comedy blends with heart-tugging true-life drama in this French box-office hit. François Cluzet is Philippe, a wealthy man left paralyzed from the neck down after an accident. Interviewing worthy types for the job of carer, Philippe is struck by Driss, a street-smart criminal who’s merely applying in order to receive benefits. Admiring his irreverence, Philippe hires Driss and moves him into his palatial home. Bonding ensues, amid many raised eyebrows.

A charming, funny, completely entertaining film. Knowing in advance that it's based on a true story is important, because the story might otherwise seem too improbable. Well-acted in addition.

Based on a true story, which makes this such an enjoyable uplifting movie to watch, the story and characters are superbly written; with humor and compassion all backed in one, a rare find in today's movies. A movie worth watching again.

Probably the best foreign film I've ever seen. I watched it twice in three days! I've recommended it to a lot of people and they all loved it. GREAT MOVIE!!! Omar Sy also starred in the Academy Award best picture winner, Moonlight. GREAT actor(s).

A different flavour from anything else out there! Fabulous. Good to watch this and Me Before You to compare similar stories. I enjoyed both movies, although they come from very different perspectives.

(Phillipe is dictating a letter to Magalie, to his penpal, Eléonore) Phillipe: "Her shining eyes are made of charming minerals, and in this strange, symbolic world..." Magalie: "And in this strange... symbolic... world..." Driss: "F*cking boring!" Phillipe: "...where the inviolate angel and ancient sphinx..." Magalie: "Is that with an 'i' or a 'y'?" Driss: "This is killing my mind." Phillipe: "'Sphinx' is with an 'i'." Driss: "Why bother with this crap? Sphinxes, daisies, angels... You'd go for this stuff?" Magalie: "True, one could be more direct. ..."And ancient sphinx..." Go on." Driss: "What's she look like?" Phillipe: "I don't know. That's not what matters. It's intellectual and emotional, not physical. I want a mind-to-mind relationship." Driss: "If she's a troll, it'll be mind-to-troll!"
