Blasco later performed the songs in New York with a band including Sam Fogarino from Interpol. This album was first released in 2000 in the U.S. and 2001 in France. It never got proper distribution in America, but the response by audience at shows and the few media that reviewed it was very good. In France, Film was considered to be one of the best albums of it's year.
