AMERICANO TRAILER (Video) – Mathieu Demy wrote, directed, and produced his first feature film, Americano, which premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. He also stars in it, alongside Salma Hayek, who shows a considerable amount of skin in the trailer. Hayek plays an exotic dancer who tries to help Demy’s character figure out what happened to his mother and recollect his past childhood memories. The movie also stars Geraldine Chaplin, Chiara Mastroianni, Carlos Bardem, Jean-Pierre Mocky, and André Wilms.
PLOT: In Paris, the relationship between Martin (Demy) and Claire (Mastroianni) is at an impasse. His mother’s death suddenly calls Martin back to Los Angeles to deal with inheritance formalities, the town where he spent his childhood. In Los Angeles he is helped by a family friend, Linda who takes him to his mother’s home and the neighbourhood he grew up in. This return to childhood haunts provokes several buried memories that appear to disturb Martin. After speaking with a neighbour, Martin goes to Tijuana in Mexico, looking for Lola (Hayek), a close friend of his mother’s. He tracks her down to the Americano, a club where Lola works as a dancer. However, to find resolution, Martin must face up to his past.
