What is the Ordinary World? In Intouchables / Untouchable (2011)

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay 

The Ordinary World in Intouchables / Untouchable (2011) is clearly Driss' home in the projects / poor neighbourhood / high rise block where he lives with his surrogate mother and family.

As per the common nature of the Ordinary World, it is small and repressive (as is demonstrated by the small bath, bathroom and kitchen table) and as opposed to the luxuriously large bathroom and kitchen he enters when in Phillippe's mansion. The small bathroom / kitchen is a metaphor for the smaller Ordinary Self and the large bathroom / kitchen is a metaphor for the bigger, wider New Self that Driss and Philippe will become.  

The 2000+ stage Hero's Journey and Transformation through a New World/State is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. Learn about this at http://www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html
