importlib: No module named

I have a folder models with a file
I want to import class Model from it and name it NamedModel.
If I do this using NamedModel = importlib.import_module("models.model.Model"), I have the followin error: No module named models.model.Model.
Although, if I use from models.model import Model, it works. How do I use importlib to import this Model?

P.S. I can’t use from models.model import Model because the name of the file and the name of the class are variables.

>Solution :

import_module only… well imports modules. You need to get a class from the module as it’s attribute with getattr:

NamedModel = getattr(importlib.import_module("models.model"), 'Model')
