Samba (Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano)

Samba migrated to France ten years ago from Senegal, and has since been plugging away at various lowly jobs. Alice is a senior executive who has recently undergone a burnout. Both struggle to get out of their dead-end lives. Samba is willing to do whatever it takes to obtain working papers, while Alice tries to get her life back on track, until fate draws them together.

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!
