Samba :share files from home directory to an other user

Hello guys
First I want ti thanks anyone who will read this question for the time he spent for me even if there is no answer. Thanks a lot

So now my problem
I have a server running samba perfectly .

2 user : joker and jeep

this is my samba file:

# Global parameters
	server string = Server de la maison du bonheur %v
	log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
	max log size = 50
	os level = 33
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192

# sécutité et identification	
	security = user
	valid users = joker,jeep
	read list = joker, jeep
	write list = joker, jeep

	comment = Home Directories
	read only = No
	browseable = yes

	comment = c la musique
	path = /mnt/Disque
	read only = No

	comment = la c les films
	path = /home/joker/Documents/Films
	read only = No

	comment = la c les telechargements arrivés
	path = /home/joker/Documents/bittorrent
	read only = No

My problems are :[list=1][*] The main one is that the jeep user can not access to the movie and the bittorrent directories cause he is not the owner. But he is in the same group as the owner and I gave the rwx right to the group. [*] Every user see his home directory as "home" and a second time the same as "username" (ex: joker, or jeep)[/list=1]
If anybody knew where is my mistake I will be glad to know how to fix my smb server.

Thx again
