New Trailer for SAMBA with Omar Sy and Charlotte Gainsbourg

Sy And Gainsbourg

Broad Green Pictures has released the official Samba trailer for the film’s USA release. The offbeat rom-com reunites The Intouchables‘ directing duo Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano with that film’s star, Omar Sy, alongside Tahar Rahim and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

This cross-cultural dramedy is a story of a illegal immigrant battling deportation, a topic similar to The Intouchables. Samba made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall and opens in New York and Los Angeles July 24.

Check out the trailer with English subtitles below.

Samba Cissé (Sy) is a migrant to France from Mali. Washing dishes in the back kitchen of a fancy hotel is hardly his European dream, but it gets worse when a bureaucratic slip-up lands him in detention. There he meets Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg), an immigration worker new to the job and unused to the hard realities of life on France’s bottom rung. When Samba is released but slapped with an order to leave France, Alice begins to let her professional role bleed into her personal life.
