Omar Sy of 'The Intouchables' hits his stride
"The Intouchables" can justifiably be called an international sensation. Having taken in more than $414 million worldwide, including some $13 million in the U.S., is impressive enough. That the film is a French comedy-drama based on a simple story of two men makes it all the more impressive. The film is also France's submission for the foreign language Academy Award, a prize the country has not captured now for 20 years.
