Florence Foresti may be the Tina Fey of France, but in Hollywood, and her new film, which she is currently shooting here, Hollywoo (No, that isn't a typo!), she's just another tourist. Early this morning, Florence's character, Jeanne, strolled down Hollywood Boulevard near Vine Street, where she tried to buy one of the ubiquitous Star Maps sold around town which indicate where celebrities live. Since this is a comedy of misunderstandings, of course, nothing ever goes the way it should for poor Jeanne. Directing this hilarious misadventure is Frédéric Berthe, who is known for shooting episodes of Sur Le Fil and Préjudices as well as the film, Nos 18 Ans.
Unlike Jeanne, I'd rather be a tourist in France. Luckily, The Travel Channel is giving away a trip for two to Paris, courtesy of the new NBC show, Undercovers.
