Mo Alexander's bad luck is that she misses the plane in Paris carrying her tour group and her luggage. On top of this, she finds that it will take several days for the travel agent to work out the problem. In the meantime, Mo meets Xavier, a true Parisian, who sees Mo as an opportunity to enjoy himself while his family is out of town. Mo reluctantly begins an affair with him, and finds herself wrestling with her conscience. For Xavier, Mo is a challenge to his cultural identity making it difficult to dismiss her. They enjoy a beautiful physical and emotional relationship, and in the end, being in love with Mo has the ability to alter Xavier on a fundamental level.Written by
I saw this one in college my roommate dragged me to it and I enjoyed it. I watched it recently and found it boring and silly.
It's an attractive film (how can a film set in Paris be unattractive?). But the main character is a clueless bumpkin who is remarkably selfish. "Mo" is the kind of person who makes foreigners ridicule Americans. What Mo sees in Xavier and what he sees in her baffles me. He's a cold fish and she's a warm (albeit somewhat dull) and loving (if misguided) person. It would have been useful to flesh out his marital problems more thoroughly.
Still, it's a good film for exploring the differences between the French and Americans. The sex scenes are a bit gratuitous.
Vive Le difference. And vive La France.
