A few things have tipped me off that I am not a young pup anymore:  I pay attention to politics like a sport, I have no idea what time Taco Bell closes and I went to a movie with subtitles by myself.  A few short years ago, I would have rolled my eyes at the mention of yet another foreign film winning an Oscar.  On this one, I would agree!  It is based on a true story about a very wealthy man in France who is paralysed from the neck down.  He hires an unlikely man from the poor section of the city to be his caretaker.  The two really connect and in essence, save each other.  It is very funny and will touch your heart in the most profound way.  Although part of my motivation for seeing it was for the Paris scenery and incredible interior design, I walked away inspired, grateful for my own health and reminded that you never know the difference you can make in another person's life.  Sorry I couldn't find photos of the house but it is worth seeing for sure!
