Over the years, Omar Sy has established himself on the forefront as one of the most interesting French actors of his generation. This success he owes in part to the series of sketches, the Emissions after-sales service broadcast on Canal+, as well as to directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano with whom he shot 5 films. Successes which allowed him to integrate the biggest franchises in Hollywood such as X-Men or Jurassic Park.
With his infectious smile, Omar Sy is one of the actors we like to follow. If Lupine is one of his greatest successes, the career of the former comedian is not limited to the Netflix series. The proof in 6 films.
The best films of Omar Sy
Three years after the triumph ofUntouchables, Omar Sy reunites with his favorite director duo. If some could imagine a film in the same vein, this is not the case. With the presence of a few touches of humor, the film opts for a dramatic comedy, evoking a very sensitive subject: the situation of undocumented immigrants in France.
One of his most personal projects, and perhaps his most successful. The actor plays in Skirmishers Bakary Diallo, Senegalese soldier forcibly conscripted with his son (Alassane Diong) by the French army. Although there is not necessarily a lot of dialogue, the film tells the story of a father who, in the horror of war, will do everything to save his child. On a more touching note, the feature film deserves to appear in this list.
His role which launched his international career. With nearly 20 million admissions in France, the film was a real hit in France. Beyond the very good interpretation of Omar Sy, the duo with François Cluzet works perfectly to give us a feature film in the tradition of the two directors Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano. Without doubt one of the best films in Omar Sy’s filmography.
