"The highest-grossing non-English-language film of all time, Intouchables reveals the life of a charismatic con man, Abdél Sellou (played by the award-winning actor Omar Sy), whose friendship with a disabled French aristocrat, Philippe Pozzo di Borgo, inspired the record-breaking hit movie. You Changed My Life is Abdel Sellou's memoir of growing up on the streets of Pris as a cheeky young Algerian immigrant, honing his talents as a petty thief and scam artist before meeting the man who would forever change his life, as Abdel would change his. In 1993, Count Philippe Pozzo di Borgo, on the heels of his wife's being diagnosed with a terminal illness, suffered a paragliding accident that left him a quadriplegic. Forty-two years old, trapped inside his luxurious Paris town house, he was an outcast for the first time in his life. Abdel, an unemployed Algerian immigrant who had been an outcast for his entire existence, would become Philippe's unlikely caretaker. Quick-thinking, unsentimental, and more than a little wild, Abdel surprises both himself and his employer by developing an unswerving loyalty - and orchestrating more than a few adventures - that help restore Philippe's appetite for life. The story of Abdel's friendship with Philippe has already touched the hearts of millions. Now his personal story of transformation from a kid who cares for no one to the person he is today will affect many more"--P. [4] of cover.
