Sydney Social 101 was invited to attend a screening of The Intouchables by Event Cinemas and Roadshow Films. I had previously seen a trailer when watching Holy Motors and thought that it looked amazing, so was very excited about this one!
The Intouchables is an irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility, THE INTOUCHABLES has broken box office records in its native France and across Europe.
Based on a true story of friendship between a handicap millionaire (Francois Cluzet) and his street smart ex-con caretaker (Omar Sy), THE INTOUCHABLES depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humour between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.
Directed by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, the film was nominated for a total of nine 2012 César Awards, France’s equivalent to the Oscars, including Best Picture, and won Best Actor for breakout star Omar Sy. I can understand why the film also won the Grand Prize at the 2011 Tokyo International Film Festival. THE INTOUCHABLES has received Audience Awards from U.S. film festivals including the San Francisco Film Festival, COL COA, and the Nashville Film Festival.
I couldn’t recommend this film highly enough, it is amazing and will leave you laughing, crying and humbled!
