Jeanne and Dragan meet in a Paris bookshop - she's working there, he's looking for a book on the Italian painter Rossetti. The two strike up a passionate affair, but Dragan doesn't tell her that he is in the country illegally. Written by
The new dogma film seems to be different. Few people just stood up and went, because they thought the love- story of a Czech artist and a French bookstore- accountant would not be enough to fill two hours. But in fact it is. The movie starts of as a fairy- tale and ends with (because of) bureaucratic boundaries. The rest is eternity. Dragan has to leave the country. A modern Romeo and Juliet interpretation. Love is strong and cannot be broken by any earthly means. This film is very honest. And the female protagonist is brilliant. Greetings to Hollywood! That's how an actress should be!
