Turning on their own

Apparently, having a film made in France with a French cast and production crew doesn’t count as a French film, according to a CBC News story. A French court ruled that the film isn’t French because the new movie was funded by a company backed by American studio Warner Bros.

Well, even if some of the French are rejecting this movie, I’m looking forward to seeing the latest work from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet and actress Audrey Tautou. They were both involved in the whimsical Amélie in 2001.
