Storyline
In Paris, the aristocratic and intellectual Philippe is a quadriplegic millionaire that is interviewing candidates for the position of his caretaker with his red-haired secretary Magalie. Out of the blue, the rude African Driss cuts the line of candidates and brings a document from the Social Security and asks to Phillipe to sign it to prove that he is seeking a job position to receive his unemployment insurance. Philippe challenges Driss and offers a period of adaptation of one week to him to gain experience helping him. Then Driss would decide whether he would like to stay with him or not. Driss accepts the bet and moves to the mansion, changing the boring life of Phillipe and his employees.Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  

"The two heartfelt central performances from François Cluzet and Omar Sy will inject you with happiness" says Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"Oscar-nominated, lauded at festivals overseas and now, one of the most successful French pictures of all time, The Intouchables is simply irresistible." Ed Gibbs in the Sun Herald
"This pleasant, predictable, fact-based tale of an unlikely friendship between a quadriplegic and his carer hits all the sweet spots a feel-good movie must." Jim Schembri 3AW

  1. Real estate deflation will be the most damaging asset to the average American due to the widespread ownership of real property in the GREATER DEPRESSION. Here is the latest sad real estate deflation economy statistics as of November 15, 2010: More than 1 million Americans will lose their homes this year. In Nevada 70 percent of homeowners are "under water" - they owe more that the house is worth. A sick housing sector due to the end of federal tax credits for first time home buyers, tight credit for higher-end homes and concerns over the deflation insurance newseconomy and job security mean fewer jobs for construction workers, realtors, title companies and others tied directly to the industry.
