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.
During Philippe's birthday party, when Driss is asking Yvonne about Magalie, Yvonne keeps finishing her pastry in one shot and then has it again in the next shot; this happens 3 times.
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.
