Synopsis
Cinema devotee Mort Rifkin accompanies his publicist wife Sue to the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, worried that her fascination with her young film director client, Philippe, might be more than professional. In addition, Mort hopes the change of scenery will provide a respite from his struggle to write a first novel that lives up to his impossibly exacting standards. Turned off by the lavish praise showered on Philippe's film, which he considers banal, Mort becomes preoccupied with the cinema classics he once taught as a professor, by masters like Bergman, Fellini, Godard, Truffaut, and Buñuel. Mort's relentlessly dismissive opinions of Philippe, Sue's current focus as a professional and someone she greatly admires, strains their already frayed relationship. Mort's mood lightens when he meets Dr. Jo Rojas, a kindred spirit whose marriage to tempestuous painter Paco is also causing her pain. While Mort's personal tastes have sometimes pushed people away, Jo's intellect and share
