Plot & Details
In this romantic comedy with serious undertones, a young Frenchman agrees to marry a Polish dissident so she can escape to France and freedom at a time when she may be in danger. After their marriage in Warsaw and a honeymoon replete with Polish policemen and her real lover, the Frenchman returns to Paris to wait for her passport to come through. Soon there are problems in Warsaw, however, and he takes off by car (an air strike is on) to salvage the plan. On the way back from Warsaw, the Polish woman and the Frenchman become lovers in truth -- but their romantic liaison, although perfectly legal, is thwarted by problems beyond their control and she leaves for the U.S. One year later, the two accidentally meet in the airport while she is on her way to Warsaw again -- and are forced to decide what to do about their very uncertain relationship.
