Movie Info

A woman sets out to discover the truth about her heritage in this drama from filmmaker Benoit Jacquot. Jeanne (Isild Le Besco) is a young woman who has begun to enjoy success as an actress. While visiting her mother on her birthday, Jeanne is made party to a long-held family secret -- her father is not the man she has known all her life, but a gentleman from India her mother met while visiting there. Jeanne has a keen desire to meet her father, and takes on a film role she previously rejected in order to make the journey to India and see the man who gave her life. Also featuring Marc Barbe and Berangere Bonvoisin, L'Intouchable received its world premiere at the 2006 Venice Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Untouchable (L' Intouchable)

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.

When France encounters India. After all these years, one big problem (to me, at least) of French Cinema (particularly to those directors who are so eager to deliver their viewers with certain messages, but just too busy giving a damn for making a smooth narrative) is the inconsistence of movie tone & narrative. This one was just another good example. The first 20 minutes were just like totally irrelevant to the last 60 minutes, & whilst which was already way too gruffly fragmented as well.
