Storyline

Olaf is to take care of the family's cleaner's store, while his dad is away on a fair. In the evening he runs into three Brazilian ladies thrown out of a limousine not knowing where to go. Olaf invites them to stay with him and his deaf pot-smoking grandfather, which at first just causes some confusion as he soon is to marry his girlfriend Vera. The next day it's topsy-turvy all over. Written by Oliver Heidelbach

What a pleasant surprise
22 January 2004 | by GMTMasterSee all my reviews

"Samba" is a fast moving small but very funny screwball comedy, set in a German small town called Mettmann. HP Kerkeling plays the son of the owner of the local dry cleaner, and he has a "small problem". His fiancee doesn't want to sleep with him, until their wedding night, which is in three month. To make matters worse he stumbles across three brasilian Samba girls, who'll turn the small town of Mettmann into a huge chaos. Good directing. Go see it.
