A Parisian caseworker helps an illegal immigrant navigate the system and sparks fly.


Why watch this film?

This is the third collaboration between actor Omar Sy and directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano, following the huge international success of 'The Intouchables'. 'Samba' is, in the same vein, a comedy-drama with good intentions and a big heart, dealing with compassion for others, but ends up falling into melodrama and in some points even condescension. Once again, it is Sy's charisma that drives the movie, this time with Charlotte Gainsbourg ('Antichrist', 'Melancholia') as his effective double.
