French Movie Night Part II: Avenue Montaigne

"There are two kinds of people in the world; those who answer
the phone and say "Who the hell's that.." and those who say "Hey!"."
- Jessica, played by Cecile de France.

After hearing her grandmother's stories about the purpose of life Jessica is more than ready to start her new life in Paris. Getting a job at the theatre bar gives her life a new spin; she meets all kinds of people and she jumps into the world of art, theatre and audiences. This kind of world seemed like an utopia on the beginning, but turned out to be a scenery of secret relationships and depressive realities. Her optimistic, curious expressions and her exciting appearance make Jessica look like a naïve but reasonable girl.

It seems like the expression "the grass looks greener on the other side" is applicable to countless situations.
