Untouchable review

Based on the real-life story of a Gallic millionaire paraplegic and his Arab-born carer, this culture-clash buddy movie is the most successful-ever French-language film at the global box office.

Nothing wrong with the turns by François Cluzet as the wheelchair-bound widower and comedian Omar Sy as the ex-prisoner from a tough Parisian banlieue.

But did the script really have to perpetuate such crass racial stereotypes?

No prizes for guessing which man loves dancing to Earth, Wind And Fire and which is the uptight individual who prefers Schubert but eventually learns to open up emotionally.
