Arthur Dreyfuss is a young mechanic at a garage in the little community of Long, France. He has a small falt and leads a simple life. So, imagine his surprise when he opens his door one evening to find a distraught Scarlett Johansson standing before him.
But the woman, although feigning an American accent, is actually Jeanine Foucamprez - and her story is very different from that of the Hollywood starlet. Arthur is not all he seems, either; a lover of poetry with a darker past than one might imagine, he has learnt to see beauty in the mundane.
A tender story about two fragile souls trying to love each other, THE FIRST THING YOU SEE will steal your heart and convince you that true beauty lies within.
