Der Pfleger Abdel Sellou beschreibt in seinem Buch "Einfach Freunde", wie er dem Querschnittsgelähmten Philippe Pozzo di Borgo die Lebensfreude zurückschenkte. In Ziemlich beste Freunde hat er die Zuschauer verzaubert - jetzt erzählt Abdel Sellou, das reale Vorbild für den Pfleger Driss, zum ersten Mal seine eigene Geschichte. "Letztes Jahr sind Philippe und ich die Helden eines fabelhaften Films geworden: Ziemlich beste Freunde. Plötzlich will jeder mit uns befreundet sein! Alles, was die beiden im Film machen - Verfolgungsjagden im Luxusschlitten, Gleitschirmfliegen, Nachtspaziergänge durch Paris -, haben wir wirklich erlebt. Aber da ist noch viel mehr ..."

The upside : a memoir by Abdel Sellou( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Abdel Sellou and Philippe Pozzo di Borgo were two people marginalized by society: Sellou a wisecracking, unemployed immigrant, just out on parole; Pozzo a man born to wealth and privilege, recently paralyzed from the neck down after a paragliding accident. How they came to help each other, and the unlikely friendship that became a lifeline for them both, is an uplifting story that's now been told and retold around the world. In this bestselling memoir, Sellou shows us the irreverent, real-life character behind Kevin Hart's smiling face. The book takes us from Sellou's childhood spent stealing candy from the local grocery store to his career as a pickpocket and scam artist, to his unexpected employment as a companion for a quadriplegic. Sellou tells his story with a stunning amount of talent, humor, style, and--though he denies that he has any--humility."--

Una amistad improbable by Abdel Sellou( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«Llamé a la puerta de Philippe Pozzo di Borgo para pedirle una firma. Era 1994, y él aún no se había convertido en el héroe tetrapléjico más famoso de la historia del cine. Quería su firma para poder cobrar el paro. Él prefirió darme trabajo. Peor para mí. No. Mejor para mí. Yo tenía veintitantos años, acababa de salir de prisión, no sabía qué hacer con mi vida y sólo pensaba en divertirme. Philippe estaba desesperado, no tenía nada que perder. Juntos tentamos al diablo. Philippe me abrió los ojos a un mundo que yo creía detestar, el mundo de quienes lo tienen todo. Y yo lo invité a conocer mi mundo, el de quienes no tienen nada ... Estábamos destinados a no entendernos. Pero acabamos siendo íntimos amigos.» Abdel Sellou
