"What I see in The Intouchables is a tasty bonbon spiked with mirth but light on malice. "Omar Sy and François Cluzet are superb actors."
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Adapted from Abdel Sellou's memoir You Changed My Life and directed by the acclaimed French duo Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano (Those Happy Days, Tellement proches) comes the César Award-Winning THE INTOUCHABLES.

THE INTOUCHABLES reveals the life of a charismatic con man, Algerian Abdel Sellou becomes Senegalese Driss (Omar Sy), whose friendship with a disabled French aristocrat, Philippe Pozzo di Borgo (François Cluzet), would forever change his life, as Driss would change his.

In 1993, Count Philippe Pozzi do Borgo, on the heels of his wife's being diagnosed with a terminal illess, suffered a paragliding accident that left him a quadriplegic. Forty-two years old, trapped inside his luxurious Paris town house, he was an outcast for the first time in his life. Driss, an unemployed Senegalese immigrant who had been an outcast for his entire existence, would become Philippe's unlikely caretaker. Quick-thinking, unsentimental, and more than a little wild, Driss surprises both himself and his employer by developing an unswerving loyalty - and orchestrating more than a few adventures - that help restore Philippe's appetite for life.
