Opening this Friday in American cinemas, a US trailer has finally arrived for Americano, the directorial debut of Mathieu Demy, the son of Agnes Varda and Jacques Demy. Starring the director alongside Salma Hayek, Geraldine Chaplin, and Chiara Mastroianni, the mystery drama follows the son of a recently deceased woman who travels to Mexico to find the truth of his mother’s past after a Tijuana stripped named Lola (Hayek) is left something in the mother’s will. Filled with depressing settings, and fluorescent lights, the trailer for this stange mystery drama reveals little and struggles to engage the viewer. Nevertheless, Hayek’s return to a strip club is probably welcome to fans of From Dusk Till Dawn and Dogma. Watch it below!

A deeply moving drama about inheritance andlegacy that deftly mines the past of a true-life filmmaking family, the film weaves a mesmerizing fictional narrative about coming to termswith unattended grief and uncomfortable pasts.
