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 goes for the interview after leaving Phillippe, the lady who is interviewing him, is sitting back on her chair when Driss mentions about the Dali's watches. In the next shot when the camera turns to her face, she is bent forward with her hands on the table. There's hardly any time for that movement to go through in that small space of time.
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.
