Jessica is a beautiful young woman from the provinces who has come to Paris and lands a job waiting tables at a chic bistro on fabled Avenue Montaigne. Jessica's customers include a popular TV actress who is courting a major Hollywood director for her first serious film role; a wealthy art collector who is about to liquidate a lifetime's worth of treasures at auction; and an illustrious classical pianist who is at odds with his manager/wife as to where his career is headed. Precisely because Jessica doesn't know how celebrated these people are, her guileless and completely unintimidated engagement in their lives has a transforming effect on them and ultimately her.

EWE.... it"s FRENCH!

May 13, 2011

This film is an example of the best in french film. It's a Robert Altman-like mosaic of characters with story lines converging. An awkward but lovely french girl comes to Paris to find herself, and encounters unique personalities and finds friendship and love. Watch for American actor/director Sydney Pollack to make an appearance in this film playing someone somewhat similar to himself.
