A MAN LOOKING INTO HIS MOTHER'S PAST DISCOVERS A LIFE OF SECRETS AND LIES THAT MAY UNLOCK THE TRUTH OF HIS OWN EXISTENCE
Smoldering Salma Hayek Stars With Cinema Royalty Mathieu Demy, Chiara Mastroianni and Geraldine Chaplin in the Searing Drama, Coming to Blu-ray and DVD from MPI on October 30, 2012
The offspring of some of the movies' greatest names come together in a moving drama concerning inheritance, legacy and the enduring pull of the past. Americano, starring Salma Hayek as a stripper who helps a man uncover secrets about his late mother, arrives on high-definition Blu-ray and DVD from MPI Home Video on October 30, 2012, with SRPs, respectively, of $29.98 and $24.98.
After receiving news of his mother's death, Martin (Mathieu Demy, The Girl on the Train) leaves his girlfriend (Chiara Mastroianni, daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni and the star of Beloved and Carnage) and home in Paris and sets off for his childhood home in Los Angeles to tie up the loose ends of his rocky maternal relationship. Arriving in the United States, Martin is greeted by his mother's best friend Linda (Geraldine Chaplin, daughter of Charlie Chaplin and star of The Wolfman and Talk to Her), who agrees to help him settle his mother's affairs.
As Martin digs deeper into his mother's past, he discovers she had a hidden relationship with a beautiful woman named Lola (Salma Hayek, Savages, Frida), who he finds at a seedy strip club in Tijuana called the Americano. While Lola recounts her affair with his mother, Martin realizes there is more than he ever hoped to know about his mother's sordid past and his own problems with commitment.
Americano, which was released in top theatrical markets, is the acclaimed directorial debut of actor Mathieu Demy, the son of two great filmmakers, Agnes Varda (Vagabond, Cleo From 5 to 7) and Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg). The movie serves as a tribute to filmmaking and to Demy's parents; it incorporates scenes from Varda's 1981 Documenteur - featuring grade-schooler Mathieu Demy.
The New York Times' A.O. Scott said of Americano, "It is wistful and nostalgic, and at the same time full of restless curiosity." Mark Jenkins of NPR said, "Demy balances his father's romanticism and his mother's naturalism, taking cues from both." Salon's Andrew O'Hehir called it "a wry film about family secrets and trans-Atlantic identity."
