THE INTOUCHABLES is the story of the unlikely friendship between wealthy millionaire Philippe (François Cluzet – TELL NO ONE) who was left a quadriplegic after a paragliding accident, and his street smart ex-con carer Driss (Omar Sy). Inspiring, heart-breaking and at times outrageously funny, THE INTOUCHABLES follows their journey of self-discovery as they confront their fears together. The pair who, on the surface seem to be worlds apart, find a camaraderie rooted in honesty and humour in one of the must-see films of 2012.

Based on a true story, THE INTOUCHABLES has already broken records worldwide, so far out grossing blockbusters such as Harry Potter, Titanic, Marvel’s The Avengers and Avatar in certain territories.  It is topping charts all over the globe and to date has made a staggering $366million. In France alone, more than 20 million people saw it.
