Probably the best French film for years
Being french and a film maker myself, I have high standards for ratings, and this one definitely deserves in 10/10. I’ve not seen a film showing our world with such humour in a long time. The jokes are absurd and possibly, with a touch of British humour to them. The directing is beautiful, the acting is incredible, the shots are somehow truthful, if I can say that about a shot. It may be Omar Sy’s first time in a leading role, for a major production, but he really delivered, and not just in the funny parts, the delivery of emotions was just spotless. Francois Cluzet was also just as brilliant, as he usually is. I will be recommending this film to everyone, and seriously hoping it will be released in the UK soon enough for me to see it again! Only negative aspect… the Americans are thinking of doing a remake… why do they always have to? I mean would you reconsider remaking the “Joconde” or the Sixtine Chapel to American standards? Film is an art like any other, it travels the world as it is… no need for remakes…
A carefree (yes, carefree) comedy about a quadriplegic
This movie does not really need another review, but after seeing what Daily Beast’s (Marlow Stern) and Variety’s (Jay Weissberg) critics have written about it, I feel that one thing needs a serious clarification. It is somewhat disturbing and, at the same time, really telling a lot about USA’s culture that American reviewers see this movie as “race-relations” feature.
I’ve read all of the 38 reviews written here on IMDb until now and I would suggest to both Stern and Weissberg to do the same. Maybe they could learn something. Most of the reviews here were written by non-Americans and, tellingly, most of them do not even mention race or race relations or anything similar. To me that shows how deep anything to do with a difference in color of skin has been intertwined with USA culture when even in this film – where nobody from, let’s say the rest of the world, does not see any racism or anything similar – the only thing USA critics do see is the difference in color of skin. Sad, very sad.
I’m, therefore, afraid that, if it shares Stern’s and Weissberg’s opinions, most of the USA audience will not see the real beauty of this film and will, probably also under the influence of critics’ reviews, see the movie as a race-relations feature when that’s the only thing it’s not.
And what it is? It is (I can’t believe I’m gonna write this) a carefree comedy about a quadriplegic and his personal aide. The movie does not at any moment come even close to apathy or pathetics which is a success on its own. The movie also has just about the perfect amount of black humor and political incorrectness and does not cross those borders at any time. I think this is the only movie about a disabled human where, after seeing it, you will go out of the theater laughing. And I can’t remember any movie which approaches such a difficult theme with such ease.
Additionaly, the soundtrack – both Einaudi’s score as well as selected tracks – is fantastic.
A lot has been written here about cast and I would just like to add that along masterful performances of both Sy and Cluzet, the rest of the actors are equally great, especially Anne Le Ny and Audrey Flerot.
