Films français avec des acteurs issus de l’immigration

To help you have a good time listening to French while viewing A-Level related topics, I’ve listed here some movies you can watch on a popular streaming service: I named UK Amazon Prime video (films are Included with your Prime Membership if you are used to get packages delivered this way; So nothing to pay in addition).


Imdb 6.7 Durée: 1h 58min 2014 sur Prime Video (15)
Samba migrated to France ten years ago from Senegal, and has since been plugging away at various lowly jobs. Alice is a senior executive who has recently undergone a burn-out. Both struggle to get out of their dead-end lives. Samba’s willing to do whatever it takes to get working papers, while Alice tries to get her life back on track until fate draws them together.
Acteur: Omar Sy
d’origine mauritanienne et sénégalaise

Les hommes du feu

update 19/01: not in Prime anymore
Imdb 6.1 Durée: 1h 33min 2017 sur Prime Video (15)
Philippe, runs a fire brigade barracks in the South of France. During a summer-long heatwave, blazing fires spark up all over the countryside, some more suspicious than others.
Acteur: Roshdy Zem
d’origine franco-marocaine

Close enemies

Imdb 6.3 Durée: 1h 51min 2019 sur Prime Video (15)
A tense, nail-biting crime caper about brotherhood and betrayal. Raised in a suburb ridden by drug trafficking, Driss (Reda Kateb: Zero Dark Thirty) and Manuel (Matthias Schoenaerts: Red Sparrow) were like brothers. As adults, Manuel chose to embrace a thug life, while Driss became a cop. When Manuel’s biggest deal goes horribly wrong, they realise their need for each other. Essential viewing!
Acteur: Reda Kateb
d’origine franco-algérienne
