Best Movies to Watch on Netflix: The Intouchables

The Intouchables is a French movie that was produced in 2011, which also later had an American remake. The American remake was called The Upside, and it starred Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston.

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
