An American goes to a foreign country. He gets off the plane and a beautiful woman is waiting there for him and he thinks he's fallen into one of those great American movies where you go places and people are exotic and there is romance and challenge and your sense of what is possible is expanded and you gain experience and wisdom and it's really fun and it makes a great memory, afterwards, it makes you into someone, it is an experience that determines you: Lowell, man of the world, business trip, Business Class, gorgeous sudden affair, feats of corporate derring do in a remote office. He's exhausted, but it all seems to be going well. The next day he goes into the office and discovers that he isn't in that kind of movie at all, he's in a different one, one of those foreign ones, with no clear hero or moral, a movie in which experience does not necessarily redeem you. And, most importantly, no subtitles.
