Please. Please. Please don’t let “reading” a movie stop you from seeing this film. Also don’t let the fact that Weinstein is already planning a Hollywood remake (with Colin Firth) stop you from see this film. If I may borrow from a follower on Twitter who also saw the movie. It’s “Poignant, hilarious and a beautiful portrayal of meaningful human connection” (Thanks Mimi)
We were invited to see a preview of The Intouchables (and to the French Embassy for the after party). I had never heard of the film. I watched the trailer (see below) and was hooked. I was hoping that the movie wasn’t a “trailer movie”. You know where a film when cut together in the trailer flows, cherry picks the best moments, and makes it more exciting then the actual film.
One word review? Go see this film. Brilliant.
