    Thanks to Joakim for recommending Intouchables.

    A feel good film with the right amount of warmth and humour. It's a simple story about two people, from completely different worlds, learning that everything isn't as black and white as they like to think. It's a cliche, yet it didn't take me too long to forget that I was watching a film. Must be good storytelling. Or maybe I'm an idiot.

    Loved the soundtrack. So much so that I downloaded it.

    Francois Cluzet looks just like Dustin Hoffman. Also when he laughs. I just had to say it.
