Long synopsis : Val (Audrey Tautou) is a penniless young French would-be actress, an irrepressible live wire adrift on the streets of Greenwich Village. She sleeps rough, outside a townhouse owned by Jack. A one-time Oscar-winning scriptwriter, Jack's muse - like his wife Beatrix - has deserted him. Impotent, blocked, Jack too is adrift. After a confrontation with Jack, Val faints from exhaustion, and he takes her in. When she wakes, they trade insults. As she storms out, it hits Jack: he's in love. Inspired, he starts writing again, a new script based on this enchanting French vagabond.Val moves in with Edna, a crazy, poetry-scribbling waitress who determines to manage her road to success. At a meeting with his long-suffering agent Irene and an eager studio executive, Jack holds off on signing a 7-figure deal. Irene drops him. In a coffee shop, Val argues furiously with Edna. She's sick of everything - poverty, hunger, endless auditions that come to nothing, and especially Edna and her lunatic schemes. Irene witnesses this very public argument. Bowled over by Val's naked emotive power, she gives her a copy of Jack's script... A year passes. Bitter and alone, Jack watches the Oscars on TV. Val wins Best Actress for her role in the film based on his script. The following night Hollywood's newest sensation comes to visit him. But Jack's problems are far from over...
