Review
I watched this french flick on the plane on my way to London. Its definitely one of the best feel good comedies for 2012. I was laughing out pretty loud also. It wasn't like a typical french art flick or anything. Just really good movie with a good story,funny script and a great cast with chemistry.
The casting for this movie is excellent. The chemistry between the two main actors, Francois(who really looks like Dustin Hoffman) and Omar is absolutely brilliant.  There are so many scenes when they are together, you are bound to laugh to your heart's content.My favorite scenes are the ones at the opera and the classical music scenes. There are also moments which are a little sad fo each character as well. I really liked the script even though it was in french, it was simple and very witty.
The direction for the movie is pretty good as well and I liked the way the movie was edited. There are quite a few nice scenic shots taken as well.Its the plot which I cared alot for. 2 completely different people meeting and filling each other's life with hope and love.Thats really beautiful and its based on a true story as well.

Worth watching on a weekend and even purchasing the dvd. You are bound to leave feeling good and a smile to your face after watching Intouchables.
