Storyline

Kate, an American at a Parisian boarding school, faces the moral and ethical choices of adulthood. Looking over the wall of her school, she becomes fascinated with a sculptor next door, and she begins a flirtation. Although he needs little encouragement, his mistress urges him to seduce the lass and contrives to leave the two together. The same week this cat-and-mouse game begins, Kate witnesses an early morning hit and run road accident in which a soldier is killed. She doesn't see the car's driver, whom we know to be the sculptor, but the car is distinctive. What will she do when she finds out he was the driver? Will she call off the affair and call in the cops? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jean Seberg
7 February 2003 | by (Glendale, AZ) – See all my reviews

The only worthwhile reason to see this movie is for Jean Seberg. Don't let the plot outline fool you, it sounds interesting and could have been good but the script was very weak. Even for 77 minutes it drags by slowly. Its only asset is the beauty of Jean Seberg.
