Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano’s worldwide hit The Intouchables made indelible characters out of the quadriplegic, wheelchair-bound millionaire Philippe and his infectiously extroverted caretaker Driss, whose chief credential is that he’s the only one who won’t treat Philippe as handicapped. Like a classic two-hander stage-play with strongly defined characters—think The Odd Couple or The Dresser—the story of Philippe and Driss calls for fresh interpretations by bold, adventurous actors and new resonance in varied cultural contexts. Enter Marcos Carnevale’s Inseparables.

This inspired Argentine spin on the French original stars Oscar Martinez, familiar to Festival audiences from his roles in Empty Nest, Wild Tales and Dolores, and Rodrigo de la Serna, who played Che Guavara’s traveling adjunct in The Motorcycle Diaries and who created a spark at this year’s Festival in Cien años de perdón. In the supple hands of Carnevale, helmer of hits like Corazón de león and the original Elsa & Fred, the story’s transposition to Buenos Aires delivers new shadings and nuances that are at once distinctly porteño and universally hilarious. – Jaie Laplante
