When Valerie, a young American actress in Paris, struggles with her role in a Moliere play, her older, French director insists she come to his home to work things out. His attempt to seduce her becomes entangled with her cynicism over a broken heart and the subtle, vindictive behavior of his Japanese wife. Cultural confrontations ensue, revealing more about love and life than either of them could have expected.
Filmed in Paris by New York-based student helmer Stephanie Sellars, who wrote, directed and starred in the film, La Vie en Gris (Life Through Gray-Colored Glasses) adds a requisite touch of Frenchness to NHFF's indie lineup.
