Films/Novels about living abroad

Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong place (mods, please feel free to move if this is so).

I've been thinking recently of putting pen to paper and starting a novel/script on general expat life, nothing serious, just a personal challenge and something I've always wanted to do (mostly to see if I have the intellectual stamina to actually finish it ).

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of/seen/read anything on living abroad. Obviously there are tonnes of non-fiction guides to it, but from my 30 minutes of research earlier today I couldn't find anything other than that.

Any thoughts people?

Re: Films/Novels about living abroad

A year in the merde/Merde Actually/Merde happens etc

by stephen clarke

books about a british guy moving to France. It's hillarious if you're either french or british. I'm sure others love it too.
These have been big selling books. I only read Merde Actually and laughed all the way through it.

Summer in Genoa by Michael Winterbottom about a man who relocates to Italy with his two daughters after their mother is killed in an accident.
Quite touching movie, bit thin on the story/plot side of things. Still worth a go.
