How others live - Samba review by RP

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2019

The film follows two main people, an illegal immigrant from Senegal living in Paris and a high flyer with burnout temporarily helping at an immigrant advice centre. Their paths intertwine, it is interesting to see how those without documentation have to duck and dive to survive and how many people are willing to exploit them.

You need to watch the film to see how it pans out, the ending is perhaps a little contrived, but in the main a film that makes you realise how easy life is when you are 'legal' and how hard if not.
