After coming to Paris to study art for a year, mid-westerner Christina James (Jean Seberg, Breathless, Bonjour Tristesse) ends up staying for four. Although she came to pursue art, she ends up learning more about herself and love. Amid the city's romantic atmosphere, she gets involved with a young student (Philippe Forquet, Waterloo) who proves too immature to truly love her. She then finds herself less of an artist and more a member of the artistic scene as she pursues a modeling career. She quickly becomes a "Citizen of Paris," and embraces it's endless parties and jaded view of love. Finally, after falling for a foreign correspondent, Walter Beddoes (Stanley Baker, Zulu), who loves his career more than her, Christina must make a choice between doomed romance and the safe confines of a marriage to an American who adores her. Directed by Robert Parrish (Duffy, Casino Royale, 1966) from the novel and screenplay by Irwin Shaw (Desire Under the Elms, Two Weeks in Another Town).
