What an incredibly heartwarming film! A+! Wealthy quadriplegic Philippe hires Driss, an ex-convict with a golden heart, to be his live-in caregiver. From that moment on, it was an adventure for the two. It’s a great story about friendship in the most unlikely situations, treating persons with disabilities like persons and not their disabilities, and the importance of opening up ourselves to life despite our shortcomings. Based on a true story. People like them make this world a better place. And doesn’t François Cluzet look like Dustin Hoffman? All French men are starting to look like Dustin Hoffman to me.
