The Intouchables (Intouchables) by Olivier Nakache & Eric Toledano
Because the premise of the story is such nauseatingly manipulative sentimental crap, and because the very first line that appears on screen is “based on a true story” [sigh + eyes rolling], I braced myself for the worse and was ready to enjoy hating that film. But alas, I quickly bought into the schmaltz and was won over by it. Mainly because the two leads were excellent and their bromance hard to resist… So Schmaltzy, oh que oui, but still a fine buddy movie.
