A true story of two men who should never have met – a quadriplegic aristocrat who was injured in a paragliding accident and a young man from the projects.
The characters in the movie are so fun and enjoyable to watch; most likely because they are based on real people, and a true friendship and bond. Omar Sy's character is easily the most vibrant and likeable. It's fun to see the fish out of water aspects. Also it is touching to see how he sees through any imperfections of Phillipe, and brings him back to life by treating him as a human being with human needs and desires, instead of an invalid meant to be cradled.
