A struggling American writer (England) and a fellow American expatriate (Mandylor) begin a sordid affair among the chaos and discord of 1940 Paris, France on the brink of World War II.
Paris, January 6th, 1940. Again, she wrote all night. She stretched, looked out at the rising sun, and bundled up against the early morning chill. As if drawn by some invisible force, she headed off across the awakening city.
Part of the action of the film is supposed to take place after the German invasion of the Netherlands and Belgium, towards the end of May, 1940. However the trees are still without leaves and the actors wear winter clothes.
Unrated version on VHS tape runs a few seconds longer than the NC-17 version.
