FRENCH FF - THE EXTRAORDINARY
Genre: Comedy | Rating: M
Runtime: 120 Minutes
Giants of French filmmaking Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano return with another unforgettable powerhouse film, The Extraordinary, which was honoured as the Closing Night feature at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
Centred on the unexpected friendship between a rich quadriplegic and a man on welfare this creative filmmaking duo continues their heartfelt depiction of those living with disabilities.
The Extraordinary is based on the real-life figure of Stéphane Benhamou who runs an informal shelter in Paris for autistic youth who have fallen through the cracks of a system unable to care for them.
As their dedicated carer, Bruno (Vincent Cassel) again demonstrates his talent in an extraordinary, no-limits performance. Struggling for both staff and money, Bruno is the heart and soul of his uncertified shelter, which comes under threat when authorities start investigating it.
Despite the hard-hitting subject matter, this film gains levity through many moments of grace and humour. Profound and uplifting, The Extraordinary, about connection, dignity and equality, will stay with you long after you leave the cinema.
