      In addition to the white and black story, what else is good

      When we talk about various groups, some key words will always pop up in our minds uncontrollably:
      French people are romantic, and after contacting them, we will find that they are very egotistical to say it nicely, and arrogant to say it badly. ;
      Germans are strict and rigid, unreasonable, and unable to communicate;
      Southern Europeans are lazy and unrestrained, and flirt with girls all over the country, but they have no intention of going to work;
      Blacks are rude, casual, do...

      true friend

      A lot of times, life can get frustrating. Some come from external constraints, such as constraints and limited conditions, while others are obstacles set by oneself, such as pessimism and self-defeating. As a result, you are stuck in a certain predicament, sullen or complaining. After all, in the face of high-ranking paralysis and the loss of a lover, it is difficult for anyone to let go. It is not so much that Phillipe is recruiting a full-time escort, but rather that he is looking for a...

      Cinematic art is too big to say shallow words with a lot of mysteries

      To be honest, I was not used to seeing black actors at first, with big nostrils, thick mouths, and oily skin. But when you smile, you can always see that row of white teeth, even in the dark.

      This is my first time in a French-language film. The picture is soft and bright, and it is slowly pushed away. Many aerial shots are great. De Heis lived a real and unrestrained life, Philip was rich and elegant, but the two people who were very different could have a lot of common...

      A French warmth film that has been praised to the sky, only from my personal point of view, the level of this film is not in line with the praise it has received, even if it is a good work, but the rating is really too high.

      The film is adapted from a true story, and the character settings in it have been fine-tuned. The black descendants replace the North African descendants, and the effect on the dramatic conflict is obviously better. There are great differences, and this distance...

      A warm film with many laughs + a good song

      This is the first French film I've seen in German (emphasis on German, because I've never seen German films before.) I don't know why French films on the Internet are in German, although German is more familiar to me, But I think it's more authentic French to express French humor and elegance.
      There are many black people in France, and they are very black African blacks. The living conditions of black people shown in the film have a basis in reality. I don't quite understand why there are...

      Out of reach, more than just the right name. Neither Derek nor Philip had any confidants by their side. Instead, two people who were completely different from the same world became good partners. A confidant is really hard to come...

      Seeing that the prototype at the end of the film is Tunisian rather than black, I instantly understand where all the subtle dissonances in the film come from. The choreographer is really looking for a black man who is too strong to form a contrast. The structure of the text is fairly fine, the A story unfolds very well, and the B story (higher cultural upbringing on the side of the black brother) is unexpected and reasonable. The film has many...

      One is from the outside, the other is published from the inside. The point that touches is the point of the world, across ethnic groups and strata, except of course, the two countries that are in harmony with each other for the festive...

    Evaluation action

    "Untouchable" is a particularly fascinating French brothers comedy. It shows a truth. As long as the actors have excellent skills, the audience will put aside their doubts and accept the unlikely. (Review of "USA Today")
    The film has rich meaning and is worth learning from all audiences. The plot of the film could easily fall into Hollywood-style clichés, but the two French directors who directed the film managed to avoid this...

    Movie quotes

    • Driss: It's not about being ready. I do not do that. I don't empty a stranger's butt. I don't even empty a friend's butt. I usually don't empty butts. It's a matter of principles.

    • Driss: What a seducer! He's epistoling like a boss.

    • Driss: So if you have red ears, it means you're turned on?

      Philippe: That's it. Sometimes I even wake up with hard lobes.

      [Both laugh]

      Driss: Both of them?

      [They laugh even harder]
