Despite the language barrier, a 25-year-old actor – handsome and charismatic to a fault – falls for the considerable charms of a capricious 18-year-old French girl. However, despite obvious sparks between the two, she remains rather blasé about the whole affair, preferring to find a good time wherever it may be (and indeed with whomever) than to get all serious about things. And with good reason too, it would seem, as she is about to be whisked off to yet another new country by her diplomat father. Mixing youthful whimsy and spontaneous romance with gentle melancholy, Morgenstern’s bitter-sweet gem proves as charming and likable as its appealing young cast.
