    I finally saw “The Intouchables.” it was very heartwarming. Great recommendation.

    I found an interview of Omar Sy.

    I heard Chris Tucker is being considered for Omar Sy character for the American version. I love CT. However, I don’t understand why they don’t just use Omar Sy? Heck! I don’t think they should remake the film at all. Its great as it is.

    I watched The Wave and loved it. It was so well done I almost forgot I was watching a foreign film. Question: the last second of the film, literally, the teacher gets this certain expression. What do you think had just gone through his mind?

      LB-I’m sorry I did not see your comment until now. That’s great u saw and liked the movie. Did u know about the real experiment this was based on before this film? However, let me answer your question. I think at the end the teacher was thinking I can’t believe how easy it was. What do u think he was thinking?
