How are rich and poor portrayed in this film? Do you think the bridging of divergent social classes is part of the appeal of this movie? Why are people attracted to films where the wealthy and wanting build relationships? What might we learn from these situations?

Why was Philippe willing to give Driss a chance to care for him? Do you think most people in similar situations are looking for pity? What “disabilities” does Driss have? How does he learn to overcome these by working with Philippe?

This movie is based on a true story of Philippe Pozzo di Borgo, that has been published as the book A Second Wind.
