In this French film, Jean turns up in New York looking for the girl who left him behind in France. It’s been a while since we’ve seen an innocent abroad comedy from the European perspective, but the familiar elements of loneliness and cultural quirks are in place. There are complications when Jean becomes attracted to a girl (La petite Jerusalem‘s Fanny Valette) he met in the airport. The real emphasis, however, seems to be on a Frenchman’s Empire state of mind. Warning: This five-minute-long trailer appears to retell the entirety of Olivier Lécot’s movie. Screening at this year’s SXSW festival.
