Philippe (Francois Cluzet) is a widowed millionaire injured in a paragliding accident. For reasons that at first appear inexplicable, he hires Senegalese ex-con Driss (Sy) to be his caretaker. We soon learn that Philippe has a wry sense of humor, doesn't want to be pitied and enjoys trading barbs with Driss. He admires the younger man's honest gutsiness and is tired of caretakers who treat him like either a child or a project or handle him with kid gloves. They soon develop a respect and fondness for each other. The Intouchables is an exuberantly charming French buddy comedy that proves an audience will suspend disbelief and follow an unlikely story as long as it's superbly crafted.
