Film FRENCH Immersion 2012-02-20 19:00:00

Director: Kevin Tierney Canada, 2011, 1OO min; French with subtitles; DVD; PG Cast: Olunike Adeliyi, Martha Burns, Pascale Bussières, Robert Charlebois, Gavin Crawford, Fred Ewanuik, Colm Feore, Ali Hassan, Jacob Tierney, Karine Vanasse.
Franglais fun from the producer of Bon Cop, Bad Cop. A good, old-fashioned dose of political incorrectness. Taking aim at all Canadians from Quebec to the rest of Canada, French Immersion leaves no Canuck unscathed. The film lampoons Canada’s political climate by drawing upon its two official languages, as well as the stereotypes and prejudices that exist between Anglophones and Francophones. The satire of French Immersion is fearless, and the winning quality of the script is that it’s funny because it’s true. Visiting la petite village de St. Isidore-du-Coeur-de-Jésus are a dozen citizens of English speaking Canadians. The town is prototypically Québécois: virtually all the townspeople speak nothing but French. The film offers a nice blend of French and English in the dialogue, and the subtitles are used to comedic effect as well, as they often spell out linguistic gaffs to both sides of the audience.. –Cinemablographer
