In the aftermath of a painful break-up, Paulette is looking for a platonic friend, and thinks she has found one in Paul; a young Englishman in Paris who is on the verge of giving up his dreams of becoming the next Henri-Cartier Bresson.
Paulette tries come to terms with her difficult family history, drawing the ever more smitten Paul into her wicked game; exploring the banality of evil and trying to touch history at the sites of some of Europe’s most notorious crimes.

We are not casting for any particular physical traits, but Paul is a shy person by nature, whose expressive face sometimes betrays him. And though he is a gentle, creative, innocent seeming soul, we discover though his relationship with Paulette that deep down Paul is someone who is very much drawn to the darker side of human nature. Full nudity is implied in the film, but full frontal nudity is not required (rear and chest will likely be visible - there is a scene in a bathtub).
Male, aged 25 to 35
Nudity may be required
