French Film Festival - Samba

South Yarra Trattoria, 302 Toorak Road, South Yarra

Join us for dinner at South Yarra Trattoria followed by French Film Festival drama comedy film "Samba".

Before the movie, join us for dinner at South Yarra Trattoria which provides authentic Italian cuisine. Savour their delicious Italian cuisine and enjoy a drink before the movie.

After dinner, we will head over to the cinema nearby (Palace Cinema Como) for the 9:00pm screening of Samba.

The writing-directing duo Éric Toledano and Olivier Nakache reunite with The Intouchables star Omar Sy to tell the story of a cross-cultural romance against the backdrop of France’s immigration challenges. Samba (Omar Sy) is a Senegalese dishwasher who dreams of being a chef. Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg) is his immigration caseworker and his only hope to stay in France. Together, they might find a future, but the path will not be an easy one.

Samba cements Omar Sy as a magnetic screen presence and Gainsbourg is superb once again as an anxious woman out of her element. Both the story and the performances are full of surprises with wonderful support from Tahar Rahim as an Algerian migrant pretending to be Brazilian.

Highly polished and appealing, it is easy to see why Samba was featured in the Gala presentation of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. After the worldwide success of The Intouchables, directors Toledano and Nakache once again explore real issues through complex and touching relationships to create this thought-provoking piece of cinema.

The film will screen in French with English subtitles.

Meet Anne at our reserved table at South Yarra Trattoria at 6:30pm for dinner before the movie starts at 9:00pm. The price includes cinema ticket only with all food and drinks at own expense. If you are parking at the Como Centre, present your parking and movie tickets together at the box office to get discounted parking.
