This is by far one of the best films I have ever seen. The story is captivating and inspiring, and the entire film is laced with humor. I have never felt so uplifted by a movie! Not only that, but the film challenges society to look past stereotypes and believe the potential in everyone. This is definitely a Must See!

That's what movies are supposed to be like .... After seeing this movie, you realize how much Hollywood has to do to get back into meaningful movies. This movie is funny, stimulating, moving, and a great feel-good movie about humanity. It makes you want to delve more into substantial relationships with every person you encounter, and get to know your neighbor and the underdog. The fact that is a true story even makes it more meaningful.

This film surprised me so much. I expected to see a socio-economic political commnetary on immigration in Europe, and was pleasantly surprised, instead. This story is one of a friendship as it unfolds, is challenged, breaks even, and resurrects. A true example of synergy, the whole being great than the parts. The friendship greater than any of these two men and their personal challenges. I would have liked more of a statement...you know what I think about statement films ... and I thought this film would have been prime opportunity to make one. But hey, someone else is going to have to make that film. I didn't miss not having a Meet The Press moment, and that's a testament to the story. A great film. Go see it today.

Love the movie. No matter what socio-economic level people are from we learn from each other and in ways we do not expect. This is what made the movie touching and funny.The acting of both guys were superb. Will watch this movie again

a fantastic movie, I can barely wait to buy this movie to show the rest of my family. I wish it were available at more theaters. Omar Sye came through the screen.
