Omar Sy Is Samba In New Trailer

19 June 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Check out the trailer for Samba, starring Omar Sy (Jurassic World) and Charlotte Gainsbourg … brought to you from the directing-duo behind The Intouchables – Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano.

Samba reunites The Intouchables’ acclaimed directing duo, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, with award-winning actor Omar Sy in a richly entertaining chronicle of an undocumented kitchen worker battling deportation from his adopted home in Paris.

When Samba (Sy) is suddenly ordered to leave France, he enlists the help of Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg), an emotionally vulnerable immigration advocate with little experience but plenty of heart.

As the immigrant aspiring chef and the burned-out corporate executive tentatively explore an unexpected bond, they inspire each other to reinvent themselves in this vibrant comedy full of tender humor and heartfelt optimism.
