Run time: 112 mins

Here to brighten up November, this fabulous heartwarming gallic spark. A huge hit in France, now around the world, and at the Rex where it has run and run.


The film chronicles the unlikely burgeoning friendship between Philippe (Cluzet), a wealthy and cultured quadriplegic, and Driss (Omar Sy) a young banlieue (slum) dwelling French West African hired to be his live-in carer.  It is routine “odd-couple shtick” but it works gloriously, simultaneously wry and tender hearted. Perhaps inevitably, Philippe and Driss quickly disregard the cosmic differences between them to reveal more about themselves in the process. Philippe’s reluctant romantic involvement with his pen-friend; Driss with his flirtatious, mischievous ways and his deep rooted family troubles.  “A charming, uplifting French drama, an irreverent, humorous take on disability, closely drawn from real-life.” (Guardian)  “Untouchable’s moral is conservative optimism: give a man responsibility and he will act responsibly? Not a film to change the world, but might charm it.” (Telegraph). From its opening ambiguity, it draws you in, teasing an uncertain tension, before you fall in love with both of them. Only the French seem to understand how to tell fundamental human tales which touch us all across barriers and language. Don’t miss.
