I just went to see “les intouchables” at the theater. I’m literally blown out. This is without a doubt the best movie I’ve ever seen. Few hours ago, if asked for a top3, I would have answered “the great dictator”, “pulp fiction” or “amelie”. This is no longer the case; this movie I just saw is from now on my very first favourite movie ever.
Never a movie made me feel this way before. I laughed a lot but also was very moved. The movie ended and left me literally paralyzed in my chair; I couldn’t move. I didn’t want to move, I needed to absorb the shock before daring getting up. I received a 2000kg stone of emotion straight in my face and heart.
I really don’t know what else I could say, I’m still digesting it.
I just read that hollywood wants to make a remake of it. Fuck-you. This is the most offensive thing I’ve read about the movie. This movie doesn’t need hollywood, hollywood needs to see and learn from this movie. It’s unbelievable.
I’m glad I paid for this movie and I will, as soon as it’s released, buy the most complete and extended bluray edition of it.
