This film will not change the world but is designed to charm it. By its avoidance of pity and larky treatment of disability it becomes a refreshing and original view of a subject which has attracted a number of recent film makers. This film is more of a comedy than The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and lacks the romance and violence of Rust and Bone (see the June 2014 show) .
Francois Cluzet the star of Tell No One and Little White Lies plays a quadriplegic who hires a huge, black helper just out of jail. The pair develop a friendship which defies social conventions.
This is a heart warming, life affirming story for both low and high brow film fans.
