An ex-nun who writes pornographic short stories crosses paths with an amnesiac wandering the streets of New York City. When they set out to uncover his identity, they come face to face with his unsavory past, including a vengeful porno actress and ruthless corporate assassins hot on their trail.

MUBI's take

Hal Hartley wrote the central role in his charming film Amateur specifically for Isabelle Huppert, who delivers an exquisite performance. This romantic thriller revolving around sex, violence, and lost identity nevertheless remains a Hartley film: full of deadpan dialogue and an absurdist style.
