The directors of our previous hit French title, The Intouchables, offer a fairly light take on migrant struggles in present-day France. Samba (Omar Sy) is from Senegal and has lived in France for ten years. When he is suddenly ordered to leave, he enlists the help of Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg), an emotionally vulnerable immigration advocate with little experience but plenty of heart. An unexpected bond develops as they inspire each other tentatively to reinvent themselves in this vibrant comedy full of humour and heartfelt optimism.
