After having tried unsuccessfully numerous times to become an American citizen, Francis recruits the help of a lawyer who tells him that the best way to become American, is to live like an American. Francis then begins to live eat and sleep American. Football teams are formed, not to mention that the neighbourhood is turned into the 51st state, at the dismay of the American government. This comedy is a clever satire of current events and American films that is truly hilarious and not often subtle. "L'Americain" should not be restricted to French-speakers as anyone remotely familiar with American politics and culture will enjoy it.
