French hit movie about miscegenation deemed “racist” by US/British distros


A hit movie in France is being deemed “borderline racist” by US and British distributors.

The movie is about two white French parents watching their four daughters marry men of different races and religions. Despite being a movie glorifying miscegenation, it is being deemed as not-pc enough by British and American distros.

This is what it has come too. A movie that glorifies the eradication of white people through miscegenation is still deemed as “racist.”

From The Local (French Edition)…

If the massive hit movie “Qu’est-ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu ?” (What did we do to God?) ever makes it onto cinema screens across the Channel and on the other side of the Atlantic it won’t be the version that’s sold some 15 million tickets here.

That’s because American and British film distributors, who love a good hit, aren’t so crazy about the borderline racist tone of the film, which focuses on two posh, white, Catholic parents whose four daughters marry men of other religions and races.

A French comedy that’s the biggest box office hit of the year in France, has been turned down by Anglo film distributors because they consider it ‘politically incorrect’ and borderline racist.

A boss from TF1 International, which is trying to distribute the film overseas, explained the problem in regards to audiences in the US and UK, where a cleaned up version of the film might appear.

“They have a cultural approach that is very different than ours,” International Sales Director Sabine Chemaly told French magazine Le Point. “They would never allow themselves these days to laugh at blacks, Jews or Asians…They know that it would immediately create significant controversies in their countries.”

She added: “The sources of comedy are different (in the US and UK). In those countries they don’t know how to laugh about differences, they live with them, but caricatures are not acceptable, even with some comedic distance.”

Perhaps true, but in a couple instances in the film’s trailer the Catholic parents say racist things, but the movie presents them as humorous.

In one scene, the parents are waiting to meet their fourth daughter’s fiancé when the father looks down at his watch and remarks: “Two minutes late, at least we’re sure he’s not Chinese,” and bursts out laughing.

But when their future son-in-law arrives they realize he’s black and the laughter stops.
