  • Q&A: 'Intouchables' Helmers Eric Toledano And Olivier Nakache Discuss 'Samba'

    SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain- Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache, who delivered the biggest French-language hit ever with the Omar-Sy starrer "Intouchables" ($426 million worldwide) in 2011, fired up this year's San Sebastian fest with the European premiere of "Samba" on closing night. In the well-polished social comedy, Sy plays Samba, a hard-working Senegalese migrant whose life is turned upside down after getting caught by authorities. Pic, which is produced by Quad Films, centers around Samba's unlikely relationship and building romance with Alice, a social worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg) who is recovering from a burn-out. Sold by Gaumont, "Samba" sparked standing ovations at both Toronto, where it world-premiered, and at San Sebastian. Kicking off the European tour to promote the movie, Toledano and Nakache took time to chat with Variety about the genesis of "Samba," what the film means to them, their collaboration with Sy and Gainsbourg, and what they look forward to in France and beyond. Broad Green will distribute "Samba" in the U.S., while Gaumont will release it in France on Oct. 15.
