This the official synopsis of the film, termed a
Mort Rifkin (Wallace Shawn) is a former professor and film fanatic married to Sue (Gina Gershon), a film press officer. Their trip to the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain is troubled by the suspicion that Sue’s relationship with her young director client Philippe (Louis Garrel) goes beyond the professional sphere. The journey, however, is also an opportunity for Mort to overcome the block that prevents him from writing his first novel and to reflect deeply. Observing his own life through the prism of the great cinematic masterpieces to which he is linked, Mort discovers a renewed hope for the future. With his usual surreal humor, Woody Allen mixes situations bordering on the absurd with stories with a romantic intertwining at times bitter.
