Other than the company that owns the comapny that made the film, which part is Hollywood?

Its generally a good idea - who would want a situation where there are only Hollywood films?

If you consider the golden rule that the people with the gold tend to make the rules, then the part that is Hollywood is the decision making (aka power).

The crux of the matter seems to be that the film isn't even premiering in France, but in North America. That fact belies, in my mind, that notion that the producers kept to some letter of agreement about using the state funding, but not to the spirit and intent of the agreement.
So France declares the film "not French," i.e., not a true product of France. The very fact that it isn't even offered to the French public makes that clear. The ruling by the cultural ministry, or whomever, just formalizes the point.
