Film Club, Fri March 13th, Untouchable (French)
As at this moment, the film will be shown this coming Friday unless events overtake us, in which case I will contact you again. The film is Untouchable (topical!), a French comedy (yes that’s right, a French comedy!). I’ve attached a copy of the DVD cover to tempt you.
The Guardian critic said:
For once, the hype is justified. This is a charming, uplifting French drama – an irreverent, humorous take on disability, closely drawn from real-life. It focuses on a superficially mismatched friendship between a wealthy quadriplegic and his ex-con carer. Each has his own disadvantage – one, physical, following a paragliding accident, the other socio-economic.
The theme-related food will comprise: brie and mini croissants, mini quiches, and profiteroles for dessert. You’ll have to imagine that the wine is French!
