From Paris With Love

Synopsis: James Reece is an ambitious aide to the U.S. Ambassador in Paris, doing little jobs for the CIA and hoping to get into black ops. On the night he and his girlfriend, Caroline, become engaged, he's told to pick up Charlie Wax at Orly. Charlie is an unorthodox government employee - large, bald and bearded, foul-mouthed and eccentric. Charlie immediately takes James on a wild ride of murder and mayhem, through ethnic enclaves. As bodies pile up, the purpose remains opaque to James. Caroline, unhappy that James has been out of touch for a day, tells him to bring Charlie for dinner. Charlie can be charming - where will it lead? Does the chess-playing James have what it takes?

From Paris With Love

Thank you, Cindy.

- Welcome.

African Aids Summit's prep meeting with the

Foreign Minister's tomorrow at noon.

Summer conference on Wednesday, G8 and the

secretarial conference dinner with the minister on Thursday.

And a reception for the secretary of state on Friday, sir.

Can't you see we have

more urgent matters to consider Reece.

Of course, sir.


Must you always be so methodical.

Well that's what you're paying me for sir.

- Cos you're worth every penny.

But that doesn't mean I'm just gonna sit here

and watch you copy Fischer's Aufitsan Spassky's back in '72.


- Parking, No 17, Rue de Gaulle...


Checkmate, sir.

What! Wait, wait, wait.

Excuse Sir, they need me downstairs

to review the summer seating chart with security.

Ya well as long as you make sure that I am seated next

to the Foreign Minister.

Of course, sir.

- By the way...

if you ever find out which of those two

secretaries' he's banging?

The brunette or the blonde?

I'm afraid both, Sir.

I love the French.


Good job, Reece.

- Thanks, sir.

You know if you gave me the chance,

I could do so much more.

I was thinking... I mean...

have you received my application

for that training?

You'll get your shot at Special Ops, Reece.

But right now...

I need you to secure a chip

for the Foreign minister's conference room during...

tomorrow's meeting with the


Would that be a problem?

No problem at all sir,

except I don't have the chip.

Really? I was told you

had it all afternoon.

No, I'm quite sure I don't.

Hold on.

Left jacket pocket.


Did you saved the world today, James?

If only you knew, Caroline.

Tell me, what have you done?

You know I can't go into details.

Not yet.

Alright then, what do you think about this?

I think wow.

You like the fabric?

- I luv it.

Looks kinda familiar though.

- It should.

Their our bedroom curtains.


So what are we eating for dinner?

Is it not part of French tradition that women

cooks while the guy watches TV?

Well things have changed since

the Middle Ages.

Now is exactly the opposite.

- Why don't we skip...

dinner altogether and go straight

to the dessert?

Is this all you can think about?

- Every second of the day.

Good morning, sir.

- Morning, Reece.

Here is your topic list for today.

I've highlighted a three point shots.

Well done, Reece.

Heading back to the office right away?

Do you mind if I stay and wait for you Sir?

- No, why don't you join us for the meeting?

Thank you, sir.

- Bonjour.


Did I mention that our previous meeting...

The president is extremely pleased with the way

your cabinet and your State Department...

have come up with a mutual agreement on our policy

concerning the African continent...


- However we believe that...

it would make a big difference if France

and the U. S. would release a common statement...

on the position of our two

countries concerning the terms and ...

conditions of the reduction

of international debt.

We are also very pleased Thomas.

Cough Candy?

- No, thanks.

Excuse me Minister.

Is it true that you recently

acquired several Goya's?

Oh really? I would love to see them.

Actually they are a loan. Absolutely remarkable.

You must see them.

You know we have several Goya's

in New York at the Frick Museum.

Have you?



I'm sorry, I've spilled all the sauce.

The sauce.

Have you made dinner.

Don't worry I didn't cook.

It's takeout.

I have a gift for you.

I forgot, didn't I?

- No, no, you haven't forgot anything just...
