From the producer and co-writer of Bon Cop Bad Cop, the first bilingual film made in Canada and the highest grossing Canadian movie in domestic box office history, comes a brand new comedy, FRENCH IMMERSION.
FRENCH IMMERSION is the story of four Anglos from different parts of Canada, and one New Yorker, who come to St. Isidore-du-Coeur-de-Jésus, a remote town in Northern Québec, in order to learn French.
The recently opened Institut Linguistique de St. Isidore-du-Coeur-de-Jésus is run by the family of a slightly dodgy Senator and includes a Director of Discipline with an iron fist and one rule: NO ENGLISH! Which actually comes out of his mouth as EN FRANCAIS!
Think of it as a very strict summer camp – for adults. For two weeks, the students live with French families, take classes in French, do everything in French - from singing karaoke to go-karting to socializing. Students who sneak off to speak a little English quickly find out that everyone in the town is a spy flashing yellow cards that scream, “EN FRANÇAIS!”
By the time the two weeks are up, neither the students nor the town will ever be the same.
Among others, Pascale Bussières (The Blue Butterfly), Gavin Crawford (This Hour Has 22 Minutes), Fred Ewanuick (Corner Gas, Dan for Mayor), Colm Feore (Bon Cop, Bad Cop), Yves Jacques (The Barbarian Invasions), Jacob Tierney (The Trotsky), Karine Vanasse (Polytechnique), Emmanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men) and the legendary Robert Charlebois.
