    Toronto IFF - Contemporary World Cinema

    Clement, a young Parisian philosophy professor is transferred to Arras for a year. Far from Paris and its nightlife, he doesn't quite know what to do with his free time. Then he meets Jennifer, a pretty hairdresser who becomes his lover. While Clement's life revolves around Kant and Proust, Jennifer's is punctuated with chick lit, tabloids and karaoke evenings with her girlfriends. Free love and free hearts, they could live a beautiful romance together, but is it enough to bridge the social gaping and cultural divide between them?
