Wondering why times are missing?


Two Parisians, burned out on their dead-end jobs, are drawn together by fate in this charming comedy-drama. Samba (popular comedian Omar Sy) is an immigrant from Senegal working as a dishwasher but dreaming of being a chef, Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg, required by law to appear in all French films) is an immigrant case worker jaded by her needy client list. The film flirts with the idea of romance between these two opposites, but avoids the easy route. 118 minutes R.
