Brevard Film Society Presents “Girl on a Bicycle”
7:00pm at Unitarian Universalists of Transylvania County (UUTC)
UUTC is located at 24 Varsity Street, at the intersection with South Broad Street, three blocks south of Main Street in downtown Brevard. The building is wheelchair accessible. Paolo, an Italian who drives a tour bus in Paris, explaining to his passengers that Paris is a second-rate Rome, has just proposed to the love of his life, Greta, the very German stewardess with whom he is living, when an attractive young French woman, Cécile, pulls up beside his bus on her bicycle – again and again. Aware that Paolo is unable to get the vision of this lovely woman from his mind, his friend, the witty womanizing Brit, Derek, advises him to meet the distracting beauty, since no woman can live up to the fantasy he has of her.
In his bumbling attempt to meet Cécile, Paolo finds himself with a French “wife”, two Australian children who call him “Papa”, and the aforementioned German stewardess with wedding plans and a growing suspicion that Paolo’s sudden absences from early morning to late night indicate the traditional Italian tendency to have something going on the side.
As Paolo’s life spins out of control, Greta, on the advice of her colleague, the airline pilot François, decides to follow Paolo and find out what exactly he’s up to.
