I enjoyed every minute of the movie!At the same time Samba is so entertaining and comical with lots of great scenes, but also educative and touching. It shows real European attitude towards immigrants. I have to highlight actors. Both Omar Sy and Charlotte Gainsbourg are so believable. My favorite character is definitely Wilson, brilliantly played by Tahar Rahim. So lovable character. The soundtrack is also brilliant. I recommend Samba to all who wants good, entertaining comedy with unusual love story. This movie is so different from classical Hollywood romantic comedy and that's why I prefer European and non-Hollywood comedies.
