While The Upside was decent, The Intouchables was significantly better in my opinion. Although I haven’t seen The Intouchables for a while, I remember the characters being a lot more funny and relatable than The Upside.
The basic story follows a former convict who needs to find a job; the only job he is available to find is to take care of a wealthy quadriplegic. The convict, Driss, strongly dislikes his job at first; however, over time his relationship with the quadriplegic, Philippe, grows and turns into something special. The movie is a very heartwarming story, and it is supposed to be based on a true story (which makes it even more relatable).
In addition to it being a feel good movie, it is also hilarious. Even though you need subtitles to understand the movie (unless you speak French), the jokes are still funny and understandable. If you are looking for something to cheer you up during this current time, I think this would be a great movie to watch.
I do not know how to watch the movie (I personally watched it on a DVD), but if you can find it I would highly recommend it!
The Intouchables Recommendation Rating: 4
1: Something worth checking out if you have time
2: Something that is a hit for some people, but not a must for everyone
3: Something worth prioritizing if interested
4: Something worth making time to check out
5: An absolute home run, worth going out of your way for
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
