Driss, a black man from the banlieue, presents himself for the job but only because he wants to to get his form signed to receive his unemployment benefit. He has no intention of taking the position. But he is the only applicant that impresses Philippe, who offers him a trial period of a month.
At first Driss isn't too keen on the carer role, particularly with regard to the more personal aspects of it, but a bond begins to form between Philippe and him, and from this unlikely beginning a strong relationship gradually builds between the two men, both gaining greatly from the experience. The story is told with a great deal of humour, making it a truly uplifting film. Unmissable.
And the Maserati sounds absolutely gorgeous!
