A New York couple, French photographer Marion (Julie Delpy
), and American interior designer Jack (Adam Goldberg
), attempt to re-infuse their relationship with romance on a European vacation. Their week in Venice didn't work out as planned -- the food didn't agree with Jack and, when he was well enough to go out, he was so focused on capturing the trip with his digital camera that he forgot to experience it. They have higher hopes for their last two days in Paris.
But the combination of Marion's offbeat and overbearing non-English speaking parents and flirtatious ex-boyfriends, with Jack's continuing photography obsession and conviction that French condoms are too small, don't make for an auspicious beginning... Will they be able to salvage their relationship? Will they ever have sex again? Or, will they merely manage to perfect the art of arguing?
