STRANGE PHOTOGRAPHER AND THE SOLITUDE, THE

Thierry is a photographer on a visit in a foreign city. He is looking for the museum. Isabelle is lonesome and helps him out. Together they go for a drink in a nearby pub. There, Thierry soon discovers that his prearranged phrases in the foreign language won't lead to the results he desires. The dialogues of this boy-meets-girl-tragedy were adapted from an audio language trainer.
