Storyline

A contemporary comedy about five Anglo-Canadians - actually four Anglos and a New Yorker - who find themselves in a two-week total immersion French program in a remote town in Northern Quebec. The place is perfect for total immersion, since according to the most recent census the population is 97% Quebecois "pure laine," unilingually French, and fervently nationalist. No one is quite sure who or what the remaining 3% is. Written by Park Ex Pictures

Goofs

The French immersion course depicted in the film is a two-week course for absolute beginners, but the red-covered textbook used in the classroom is Level 2 of Moi, Je Parle Français, not Level 1. The Level 1 edition of the series has an orange cover and would take more than the allotted two weeks to complete. See more »

Best Canadian comedy movie in history
17 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the best Canadian comedy movie in the history of Canadian cinema. Congratulations TVA.

Putting together Canada's most distinct societies, Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador, with a cast including ardent Quebecois rock composer and singer Robert Charlebois and "The Republic of Newfoundland"'s "22 Minutes" Gavin Crawford is sheer genius.

And it's all set in a typically Canadian rural community that could just as well be full of Manitobans, Ontarians, or any other provincials living in Canada. This movie is a great satirical look at the way so many Canadians see Canada and the rest of the "outside" world, i.e. everywhere beyond the town boundaries.

There are tonnes of inside jokes requiring a pan-Canadian knowledge of Canada, its bilingual and multicultural essence. It's a very good way of learning about Canada and Canadians.

If you don't get this movie don't worry. It just means you're not really Canadian.
