Set in Paris, plot centers on a young American woman stranded in the City of Light when she becomes separated from a tour group headed for Eastern Bloc countries. Frustrated by airline and diplomatic red tape, Mo Alexander (Karen Allen), takes refuge in a modest hotel.
Temporary setback is put aright when a neighbor, suave banker Xavier de la Perouse (Thierry Lhermitte), checks on the woman’s story for verification. It doesn’t take much to guess that the two tenants are destined to hit it off romantically, even if there are some initial awkward moments.
However, filmmakers are not intent on making another ‘woman involved with a married man’ or ‘doomed love affair’ saga. Instead a fanciful, unconvincing ‘love conquers all’ scenario emerges.
