    "If you don’t speak or understand French you might like to get this film with English Subtitles.

    A fine and noble story of a crippled and disgruntled (cheesed off) billionaire who employs a wild and relatively free thinking African immigrant as his PA and they decide to merger. This results in a multi-plexxed outcome and a good good entertaining and poignant film.
