The Untouchable (L' Intouchable) Reviews
September 1, 2010
Not by any means a bad movie, but extremely vague. I really didn't get what had happened at the end, just as the rest of this movie paced along slowly, not really explaining a lot or setting up much of a back story for Jeanne.
The gist is that a young French actress discovers that her father was an Indian man her mother had a fling with. She flies over to India to find him. Cue many slow scenes of Jeanne on the plane, in the airport, having a very unique massage and befriending a gay man who takes her to a convent to meet a relative who became a nun (another strange scene which doesn't make a lot of sense or is properly explained). I guess it's like life, not everything has an explanation or is neatly tied up at the end, but it was quite a frustrating movie, for me, in that I felt like I had no real idea what I just watched.
The actress who plays Jeanne is beautiful and i liked the scenes of India (although no way no how does it tempt me to visit). It's a nicely filmed movie, but just too open for my liking.
