Load objects using __import__

I load objects from a file (to django framework _but it's a python

1) Before I used this
    from project.I18n.models import *

And to load the object
    c1 = Country(name="Afghanistan")

But the problem is that there is to edit 'project' manually.

2) So I setup the environment and import the module:
    project_directory = os.path.abspath('')
    project_name = os.path.basename(project_directory)
    os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = "%s.settings" % project_name
    module = __import__('%s.I18n.models' % (project_name), {}, {},

It's all correct until here and to checking it I run:
    print i18n_module
    <module 'project.I18n.models' from

    print i18n_module.Country
    <class 'project.I18n.models.Country'>

But when I load the object I get
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax

    c1 = <module 'project.I18n.models' from

Any idea?
