Alone and depressed after the suicide of her lover, American flight attendant Gina travels to Paris and hooks up with nightclub bartender Jerome on her layover. But as Gina falls deeper into lust and opts to stay in France, this harmless rendezvous quickly turns into unrequited amour fou.

MUBI's take

Charting an escalating romantic obsession in Fassbinder-fluorescent candy colors, this darkly comic yet defiantly compassionate character study observes the trials of being a wallflower. A visually bold and tragicomic take on the delusions of love, with a voice-over narrated by Anjelica Huston!
