Broken English

A Feature film by Zoe Cassavetes

Release in France : 16/07/2008


    A perfect New Yorker, Nora, well into her thirties, has developed a tough shell when it comes to love. Cynical and disenchanted, she wonders what on earth she can do to find the ideal man. She is certainly not helped by her mother, who never misses a chance to remind her that she’s still single. After a series of disastrous encounters, she meets Julien, a carefree and joyful Frenchman, who has come to New York to work on a film that ultimately doesn’t go into production. Nora allows herself a moment to be convinced by Julien’s carefreeness, but fearing a new failed love affair, she refuses to believe in it and lets Julien return to France.

    Overcome with remorse, she finally decides to go to Paris, hoping to at last shake off her daily routine and habits. This journey will be the opportunity for here to take her destiny in hand.
