Samba (Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano)
Starring: Omar Sy, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tahar Rahim, Hélène Vincent, Youngar Fall, Christiane Millet, Jacqueline Jehanneuf, Liya Kebede, Sabine Pakora
Why I loved this film: Samba is a French romantic comedy. What I like about this movie is that it is not so cheesy and over the top like many Hollywood productions. Samba is a very personal film. The characters are every day people with every day problems. It also picks up the migration issues in France, which makes it that much more interesting.
Overall, this film is perfect, romantic, funny, entertaining with a little bit of drama and social criticism. You definitely get your money's worth!
