This film represents the second generation of directorial works by the Demy family that stars members of the Mastroianni/Deneuve family, having been directed by Matthieu Demy and starring Chiara Mastroianni. Previously Matthieu's father, Jacques Demy, directed Chiara's mother, Catherine Deneuve, in four films and father, Marcello Mastroianni, in A Slightly Pregnant Man (which also co-starred Deneuve).

I saw the movie on TV5 and found it a great film. Why? Well, it's exactly the type of movie that I have lately been interested in. Like the movies of Michelangelo Antonioni, who was an inspiration for my latest novel, and like the movies of Sautet or Godard etc. The French movies from the sixties and seventies, in which not too much is happening (my wife always says, what the hell are you watching? Nothing's happening, there's no plot). Americano also reminded me of Paris Texas by Wim Wenders. Like Paris Texas it has this curious quality of a road movie mixed with certain story telling and autobiographical aspects. Anyway, who wants a straight story? I also liked the actors very much. Apart from that, the images are always fascinating. A star cast for a visual spectacle.
