gets a new look !
Paris. The love story between Dragan, a 25-year-old Yugoslav painter, and Jeanne, a Parisian woman around the same age. Their meeting, their first night, their happiness. . . until the day we discover that Dragan is illegally residing in France. Their wonderful love story meant to last forever threatens to come to a sudden end.
Love is the ultimate bulwark against the chaos of this world. A desire to communicate a kind of humanist ethic from a libertarian standpoint. A desire to compose a character for Elodie Bouchez, an actress who's very open-minded, who possesses a controlled emotional generosity that she freely offers to the movies, crossing all borders. A French European film in English. English is the language of communication between Europeans, just as it is for our two heroes, the Parisian and the Yugoslav. A message to Europe in the widest sense: don't drive us apart.
