I never heard of this film until I recently found a copy of it in a dollar bin in a corner store and bought it. I thought the title sounded like a documentary about Samson and his relationship with Dalila, but that was not the case at all. This film actually is about the famous french musician Samson as he is coming to a movie set in France. I don't know if the name Samson is the same in French as it is in English, but I assume that is the case. I do know that the French producers did this film mainly for the success of Samson et Dalila, so I guess that was the reason why they did this film. I must admit that I was really impressed with the visuals of the movie and the performances that were given by the entire cast. It was also nice to see actors who came out of the underground Hollywood scene that had gone mainstream like Christopher Lee, Renee Zellweger and Oliver Platt. I guess that was a reason why the film got such a great reception in France. As for the performances, I must admit that the main focus of the film was on Samson's performance and I found that to be extremely entertaining. For me the real star of the film was Dalila, who I was expecting to do a little bit of acting but not that much, but this was not the case at all. She gave a phenomenal performance and is the reason why I think that this film is so well known. Of course, as I said before, I think the film is about Samson and Dalila, but it is also about how good they were in their roles. I think that the film did a really good job of capturing the essence of their friendship and I also like the fact that they kept in the scene that Samson was from a time period that I was unaware of. I think that this was a great movie to watch with the family and I think that everyone should watch this film because it is a really good way to spend a rainy day and it is entertaining and interesting for everyone who watches the film. Definitely a film I recommend you to watch, but I will not be recommending it to anyone for a very long time.
