UNTOUCHABLE is a French language comedy drama, subtitled in English, based on the true story of a relationship between a wealthy Parisienne quadriplegic and his carer. The film is rated 15 for strong language and drug use.

The film contains thirteen uses of strong language in the English subtitles. Most uses are casual and occur during conversations but some uses occur in the course of heated exchanges. There is also some milder bad language, including a use of 'bitch'.

The carer is initially seen smoking marijuana on his own. Later he begins to smoke joints with his new employer who uses it to provide pain relief. The carer is shown to come from a poor area of the city where his life was lacking direction. There is also a reference to harder drugs as a young man is released from police custody after being caught in possession of '30 grammes' of an unnamed substance.

UNTOUCHABLE also contains some moderate verbal sex references and innuendo, including a remark about a 'threesome'.

No-one younger than 15 may see a 15 rated film in the cinema. No-one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video or DVD.
