George Abitbol, "the Most Classy Man on Earth", dies sputtering his famous last words: "cr*ppy world!" What the heck did he mean? Reporters Steven, Peter and Dave investigate. La Classe Américaine is a montage of scenes taken from the Warner Bros. catalog and dubbed to fit the narration of what is arguably the greatest story ever told. Written by
The project started when Warner agreed to leave the French TV channel Canal+ to use its 4000-movies catalog free of charge and rights for a month (except some of them, like Clint Eastwood's ones). The directors Michel Hazanavicius et Dominique Mézerette, who already did two short movies using the same way, enjoyed very much that decision and they picked their choice amongst the whole bunch of flicks. The whole job was done in six months. See more »
What the words "Monde de merde" (fucking world) means ? Is it a name ? Is it a woman's ? Is it a horse's ? Or is it a sledge's ? On a story based on Citizen Kane, three journalists, Dave (Paul Newman), Peter (Dustin Hoffman) and Steven (Robert Redford), are investigating the life of George Abidbol (John Wayne) after his mysterious death, searching the meaning of his last words "Monde de merde". But wait a second... a french film with Paul Newman, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford and John Wayne ??? No, I didn't drink too much. Actually, this "flim" is a mix of many old films, dubbed in french with silly dialogues which don't have any sort of link with originals. And that makes one of the funniest film I've ever seen !!!
