When Is A French Film Not French?

A movie made by French and shot in France has been declared not French by a Paris court. “The film, which lands in theatres in North America on Friday, was shot in France using French actors and a French crew. However, the administrative court ruled that the film does not qualify as Gallic because the production company behind A Very Long Engagement, 2003 Productions, is backed by the Hollywood studio Warner Bros.”
