The on-location photography in Paris helps this romantic twister out quite a bit. Peter Weller tries to test the feelings his girl-friend has shown for him by suddenly becoming poor, but that's only the beginning. Fairly well acted, especially by Carey Lowell, a new-comer to me. Well worth a look-see by anyone who likes romance with a twist or two.
