Forgotten little film has an alternate 80's-early 90's feel with washed out visuals and characters full of vague unrealized yearnings. Reminded me of "All the Vermeers in New York."
Alfred comes to New York to move in with a woman he met casually in Paris. "I came to infiltrate the American middle-class." She of course can hardly remember who he is. He tries to win her through various strategems un-deterred and unfazed by immigration problems, theft, homelessness etc. until he runs into some mobsters that put him in charge of a mansion in Long Island and a savage rotweiler. The cinematography of New York in winter is superb, but the acting strictly amateur.
Not great, but unexpectedly appealing none the less if you give it a chance.
Now on DVD.
