When Samba is sitting in the Metro waiting for a train, behind him is a poster with the heading 'Pasolini Roma'. This is an advertisement for an exhibition that examined the works of writer and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini and in particular, his interactions with Rome. The exhibition was not limited to his cinema work but also included poetry, politics, his commitment to city life, sex, and friendship. It was held in three cities - Barcelona, Paris and Berlin, with the Paris exhibition at the La Cinémathèque Française running form 16th October 2013 t0 26th January 2014. See more »
"Samba" is a french comedy with a great history about the immigrants. I like this film. I've seen this film recently and I've been surprised because at first i thought it was just a stereotype movie about immigrants. Actually, I don't like french films but this one was a good one, there are really good characters. Obviously my favorite actor was the leading actor, Samba ( Omar Sy ), he plays very well. What i found as a great idea is that we can laugh even if it's a sad story with a happy ending. The only problem I had is that I already knew what was going to happen at the end of the film. I really recommend this film if you like laughing and watching touching film.
