Nathalie Baye, one of Europe's most delightful actresses, is cast in an elementary tale about a girl who looks for a new life in Paris. Though it's the standard country-girl-finds-disillusionment-in-the-city story, it is made thoroughly engaging by Baye (DAY FOR NIGHT [1973]; THE GREEN

ROOM [1978]) and Bruno Ganz (THE AMERICAN FRIEND [1977]). The City of Light never looked darker, as Baye finds lust rather than love in the arms of Swiss executive Ganz, who after sleeping with Baye, makes tracks for Japan to tend to his business. She befriends equally disenchanted actress Angela

Winkler who, weary of the casting couch, becomes a prostitute. Baye, enlightened to the ways of Paris, ultimately returns home to find peace.
