Actually it's the other way around:  In another signatory nation a film (or
other work) gets the protection of that particular nation *not* the origin
nation.  So a French film in the US gets the protection of US copyright law
and a US film in France gets French protection.  See Article 5(1) of the
Berne Convention.
