Text Type (circle): Visual Text

Brief outline of plot (2-3 sentences):  

The plot of the movie ‘The Intouchables’ consists of a rich man named Philippe who became quadriplegic due to a paragliding accident. This results in him needing assistance for doing everyday things. He needed a new carer and was trialing for new candidates with his secretary Magalie. They hire a young offender called Driss. Driss created a unbreakable bond with Philippe.

 

Important Idea/s

An important idea that I discovered among the film was how Driss made himself enjoy the job he acclaimed and cut corners to make things good for him and everyone else around him. Driss was making jokes with and about Philippe to give Philippe a good time that he hasn’t had for a long time. This is also enjoyable for Driss as he can laugh with Philippe.

How does this text connect with the rest of the world (socially, culturally, politically, historically) Use specific examples/quotes

The film connected to the outside world because firstly the film is based on a true story which implicates that all the scenes in the movie are related to real life situations. I also think that the lifestyles of Philippe and Driss are very relatable to lives in Paris as Driss lives a poor life with family in a small house.
