Driss, an unsentimental Senegalese ex-con, applies for a job as carer to Philippe, a wealthy quadriplegic, in order to qualify for benefits. Despite his lack of qualifications and seemingly inappropriate attitude, Driss lands the job, and so reluctantly learns to move, feed, and clean his disabled boss. As he does so, the two men discover a blunt but vital humour that not only bridges the cultural and class divide between them, but gives Philippe a renewed joy in life.
Untouchable is an irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility. It is the second most-successful French film of all time at the domestic box office, and also did record-breaking business across Europe and in the USA. Yet it in Britain it passed almost without notice. Discover what we missed . . .
