I have waited impatiently for this movie to come out on DVD. My husband couldn’t understand why in the world I would want a movie that I had to read subtitles all the way through the whole thing, but let me tell you it was worth reading it all the way through!!
I shared with the laughs and even the tears. It is a very heart warming movie. It reminds us that even if a person can’t move their physical body and they have a sound mind that they are still a person with plenty of emotional feelings. I personally get that from being bed ridden so many times in my life.
I was blessed with the ability to still write or hold a book on my own, but if I couldn’t do that I have no clue how I’d be able to survive worth a dime. I went insane just from not being able to get up and walk on my own. I must have a sense of independence.
However, this movie shows us that people regardless of their impairments still long to make a sense of connection with others. Plus they want to be treated like a human being and not someone who we have pity on or are on tip toes around. It shows that they can do a lot of the things that others can, but it may be in a different manner.
I totally utterly enjoyed this movie!!! I highly recommend it for anyone (provided you can read or speak French.)
