After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caregiver.
The nervousness and slight pacing of Driss in the first scene where he meets Philippe was intentional - the director wanted to contrast Driss' mobility to Philippe's immobility.
Outta the way.
When Driss is getting ready to leave the mansion after Phillipe fires him he is seen putting the baby monitor around his neck. In the next scene the monitor is gone, and when we see him next in the foyer it's around his neck again.
5% of the profits from the film will be donated to the Association Simon of Cyrene - 15 rue de Suffren - 75015 Paris whose purpose is to create shared living spaces for disabled adults and friends.
