Pozzi di Borgo has written a book called 'Le Second Souffle' ('The Second Breath', my translation) where he tells the story about his life with Yasmin Sellou and it's from this book the directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano made the adaptation for the screen.
This is Philippe.
He has been confined to a wheelchair since a paragliding accident left him a quadriplegic in 1993.
Philippe and Abdel’s story was the inspiration for the film The Intouchables,.
If you go and see it, take a friend. You’ll be glad you did.
