Influence of American culture on French media
18 November 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

The influence of American culture on French media is huge.Most of the French people are passionate about English books,cinema and music.This is because of the fact that American troops were stationed in France on many occasions and their presence has left an indelible mark on the psyche of most of the French people who are not satisfied with what is produced in their country in the fields of arts and culture.This is the reason why since a long time Hollywood cinema is able to dominate cinema culture all over France.Janis and John is a good example of domination of Anglo Saxon culture over French culture.All credit must go to director Samuel Benchetrit for making a film about how French people view two of the most popular musical legends.Janis and John is an intelligent film as it has its own fair share of laughs.It has not been able to become a cult film despite the fact that it was one of the last films in which Marie Trintignant played a leading role before her untimely death.One of the most troublesome aspect of this film is the lack of good music whether in the form of some good songs or some good background score.The positive aspect of this film is the impeccable acting from versatile actors such as Jean Louis Trintignant,Sergi Lopez and François Cluzet.
