Wesley Mead’s review:
A beautiful, powerful movie that is set to stay with me for weeks. It's a crowd-pleaser, but it's a crowd-pleaser in the greatest sense of the word; a movie that truly earns catharsis and emotional impact, rather than getting syrupy and mawkish for the sake of it. It's extremely funny from start to finish, and the chemistry between Cluzet and Sy is formidable; simply one of the finest screen partnerships I've ever seen. Intouchables is an instant classic, and the best film I've seen this year.
