Harry is a normal guy. Very normal. He finds Georges on the road. "Me mongol", says Georges. Harry wants to take Georges back to his home. He cannot get rid of him. He grows fond of him. These two people whom everything sets apart will become inseparable. Things will not be the same anymore. Luckily for Harry !


"(...) Auteuil is as graceful as the best tightrope walkers. Those who stroll calmly along above the void with the sparkle in their eye showing a blend of anxiety and excitement. We have no notion of the effort they put into this but we believe in the danger. Few actors could have borne the raw impact of Pascal Duquenne's presence with such mischief and generosity, subtlety and spontaneity. They play on this like two flints striking sparks off each other. The film's heart-warming epilogue is the sight of these two men, arm in arm, holding aloft their red-ribboned awards.(...)"
