This is a romantic comedy set in Paris about a family that goes there because of business, and two young people who are engaged to be married in the fall have experiences there that change their lives. It’s about a young man’s great love for a city, Paris, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.
Adriana, an exquisitely beautiful aspiring fashion designer who has been the lover and muse to a series of famous artists. There are always special women that artists painted a number of times, women that lived with the artists and provided an enormous amount of support for them. Adriana is not only lovely, she’s also very intelligent, someone who can provide a very strong artistic force for them to bounce things off, to support them when they’re down, to encourage them when they need it, and to tell them when they’re wrong. In many cases this can provide a rich partnership with the artist.

Quotes from Marion
Adriana doesn’t know where she belongs, she is searching for her place. She admires artists because their world is wide and their imagination takes them to some marvelous places. She needs to dream.
She has always felt she didn’t belong to the era she lives in and she feels Gil is the same kind of person. She recognizes herself in him.
Quotes from Others
Marion has got a built-in charisma. She makes the most ordinary kind of moments and dialogue sound interesting because she herself is such an interesting movie actress. And she’s got a very lovely and interesting face to look at; I never get tired of looking at it. I also noticed that she’s able to call up any kind of emotion she wants quickly and easily.
