The Intouchables (4 Stars)
Again a foreign movie that rocks and did not disappoint me. I had an idea that this was going to be a good one, after seeing the trailer. Five minutes into the movie I knew it. Music which for me is critical to good movies was spot on. Most people will not care but as a car guy, I loved the sound of that Maserati as they tooled thru the city and country side.
Things that are important for me, this movie did very well. Developed the main characters and added some life to the supporting case. The two main actors Philippe (François Cluzet),you will remember him in The Art Of Love and Driss ( Omar Sy) his first starring role. They are two very unlikely people who would normally never meet but circumstances are different here. Lucky for us as the story tells allows us to follow along for the journey of people becoming friends and yes more than friends. They learned so much about each other on this journey and so can we. I wish there were more of these types of movies and so much less of things like, "That's My Boy" or "The Dictator". Even Yvonne (Anne Le Ny) the house keeper has some things to say and do that are very important to this movie.
The scene of Philippe's birthday party was so well done and the appropriate music captured the tone as we listen to some classics, old and not so old music. I loved this movie and most of you will not see it as it's French with sub titles but you are missing some really great performances by not "having a go" as one would say in England.
I love foreign films, ever since I saw my first one in 1981 at the Ritz in Philly " The Last Metro" with Catherine Deneuve, and Gérard Depardieu , also a French film with sub titles.
