Version Originale: UNTOUCHABLE


Untouchable was produced by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, the main actors are Omar Sy and François Cluzet, this movie was released on November 2nd 2011, and it lasts for 1h52. The soundtrack was made by Ludovico Einaudi , the title of the song is Una Mathina. The film is a comedy and it was inspired by a real story , the story of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo. The movie was adapted from the book « le second souffle» by Philippe Pozzo di Borgo.

This movie explains to us the friendship between two men completely different : Driss, played by Omar Sy, who comes from a suburb and Philippe who is a rich , tetraplegic man.

At the beginning of the film , Philippe needs a personal care assistant. Driss applies for the job.

The next day , he returns to the house and he had the job.

Then , these two characters create a link and become friends.

However , Driss explains his situation to Philippe : he has been adopted by his aunt, has a lot of brothers and is poor.

At this moment , Philippe orders him to go back home. He gives him 11 000£ to take care of his brothers but he also explains that he is in love with Eleonor. He writes to this woman very often but he doesn’t want her to see him because of his « illness».

After these events , Philippe has to find another personal care assistant but nobody has the qualities of Driss…

In my opinion , I think the film is very moving because it shows that two persons of two different social backgrounds can become friends but it is at the same time very funny most of the time so I like this film.
