ABSTRACT
The article presents a profile of French actor Omar Sy, focusing on his film "The Untouchables" which opens in the U.S. on May 25, 2012, the film's setting in the banlieues or outskirts of Paris, France, and his defeat of fellow French actor Jean Dujardin for the 2012 Best Actor César award. The popularity of "The Untouchables" in France is reportedly due in part to the contentious presidential election which took place in the country in 2012 between President Nicolas Sarkozy and eventual winner François Hollande.
