Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
From experimental filmmaker Jon Jost comes this romantic drama comprised of mostly improvised scenes. Emmanuelle Chaulet plays Anna, a struggling French actress in New York who meets an overworked financial broker named Mark in the Vermeer Room at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Anna resembles one of Mark's favorite paintings, so he asks he out for coffee. From there, the two struggle to overcome their personal baggage and attempt to allow themselves to fall in love. Director Jost was awarded the Caligari Film Award at the 1991 Berlin International Film Festival for this film and Sure Fire.
