‘The Intouchables’ directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano tells the story of a wealthy and physically disabled man, Phillipe, who due to his accident requires a full-time carer and with good timing and risk-taking from both parties, he hires a street-smart ex-con, Driss. The story follows the humour and connection between the two individuals who on the surface, would look to have nothing in common.
Phillipe and Driss come from two very different backgrounds, ethnicities and social situations. However, even though they began as two different people with contrasting personalities and experiences, they developed throughout the film, sharing their backgrounds and using them to further better each other life experiences.
