Review : Intouchables debuted in 2011 in France and quickly became the second most successful French film at their box office. The subject is hard but the movie is really funny, with very touching moments. In a few seconds you are fully projected within the film from the beginning to the end. There is no special effect but the actors are playing very well. If you are skeptical for French movies don’t be for this one…
Availability: Intouchables is available at Lake Bluff Public Library in DVD.
