No, not the 80s Kevin Costner flick (that’s “Untouchables”).  This feel good French film (yes, you read that correctly.  Not a single rape scene) is “based on the true story” of a wealthy paraplegic and the street thug who took care of him.  The film evolves absolutely exactly, note for note, like you think it will.  The young thug helps the guy open up, live again and love life; along the way, the thug finds his heart and a beautiful friendship develops.  As such, it is hard to call it a great film but I’d be lying if I say I didn’t enjoy it.  It was charming and much funnier than I thought it would be.  Not a single bad thing happens in its 102 minutes and I didn’t mind at all.  Pure feel good fluff, but if that is what you’re in the mood for, you won’t get much better than this.
