Box Office Milestone: ''The Intouchables''
The movie has earned more money than any French-language film in history
Unlikely French blockbuster The Intouchables, a dramedy about a wealthy quadriplegic who befriends his caretaker, recently became untouchable at the global box office. The movie, which earned $166.1 million in France alone, has now sold about 23.2 million tickets outside of France — more than any French-language film in history. The movie has grossed $11.9 million in the U.S., a respectable sum for sure, but not enough to beat Amélie, which made $33.2 million here in 2001.
