A Feature film by Claude Zidi

Produced by Renn Productions

Release in France : 16/04/1997


    Arlette is a waitress in a transport café somewhere in the depths of France. Arlette has a normal, boring life and a lasting, but episodic relationship with Victor, a truckdriver. With her big mouth and sentimental heart, Arlette dreams of getting married but Victor won't hear of it since he is already "married to the road". Arlette has no idea that thousands of miles away, in Las Vegas, her destiny is in the balance around the death bed of an old man, Assler, boss of one of the city’s biggest casinos.

    She is neither very young, nor very pretty. She's a waitress in a transport café. He is young, rich and handsome. He wants to marry her. He's obviously hiding something. But what? What if she was a rich heiress, without knowing it? And what if, knowing this, he was merely a cheap gigolo after her money? And what if nothing went as planned? (Claude Zidi)
