SAMBA is a French drama about an illegal immigrant who develops a relationship with a French woman while struggling to stay in Paris.

Language

Occasional use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes 'shit', 'crap', 'screwed' and 'pissed'.

Other issues include some moderate violence as a man is beaten up by a gang of men and left with a bloody cut on his temple. In another scene, two men struggle with a few punches and a bite to a man's arm. The pair eventually fall into a river and disappear.

There are also some mild sex references as a couple are said to be 'really going at it' and 'making babies' when they kiss passionately on a bed. Another couple kiss and remove the man's shirt as they lie on a bed. There are some references to how a woman enjoys the excesses of vices such as 'food, drink, sex'.

There are some references to the use of prescription pills for depression and insomnia.
