Intouchables - Toledano & Nakache (2011)

 
A full year after the rest of France, I finally came around to viewing this odd-couple dramatic comedy about the friendship between an unemployed immigrant and a quadriplegic upper-class gentleman.
 
The most arresting thing about this film is that absolutely everyone seems to love it. I have had teenage boys practically go tear-eyed on me when evoking it.
 
And yes, OK, I can see the appeal.
It is funny and charming, and most of it is due to Omar Sy, who owns the film. Referring to him alone, a more appropriate title could be 'Irresistible'
