Movies like “Paper Moon Affair”

A wealthy Asian couple – he Chinese, she Japanese – arrive in Paper Moon Bay, an isolated town on the west coast of Canada, for a respite. Theirs is an emotionally distant marriage, due in large part to his chronic infidelity of which she is aware. To fill that emotional void in her life, she, named Keiko Hanada, meditates through doing origami. That emotional void is strengthened when he abandons her in town, especially as life in Paper Moon Bay in all aspects is totally foreign to her. Keiko wants to leave herself to head back to the comforts of Tokyo and her support network, but finds that leaving is not as easy it was arriving. She attracts the attention of most in the town, who see her solely as the foreigner they don’t understand. But one person who sees in her at least as a temporary answer to his own problems is Vern Staub, the local police officer. He too is in an unsatisfying marriage to Lucy Staub, their problems largely regarding their sex life. Vern begins a sexual relationship with Keiko to fill that void in his life. One other person attracted to Keiko is nineteen year old Hart Turner, who wants more than anything to escape the repressive life in Paper Moon Bay, especially in getting away from his alcoholic fisherman father, Bill Turner. Keiko’s resulting relationship with Hart is more an emotional one based on her need for a true friend, although he would like it to be so much more.

Grouchy, uptight 64-year-old Buddhadev Gupta lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle in London, England, along with his widowed TV and wrestling-addicted mom. He is the owner of Spice 6, one of London’s top restaurants that specializes in Indian dishes. One day a customer, Nina Verma, complains about the zafrani pulao, and Buddhadev does not take it well, only to subsequently find out that the pulao was indeed imperfect. He decides to make amends to Nina and lends her his umbrella during a rainy day. Both subsequently become friends, fall in love, and decide to get married. She is introduced to Buddhadev’s mom, who instantly approves of her. Nina, who lives in Delhi with her widower dad, cuts short her visit when her dad gets sick. Buddhadev and his mom also travel to India so that Buddhadev can ask for Nina’s hand from her now-fully recovered dad. Buddhadev does meet with Nina’s dad and, after considerable hesitation, does manage to ask for Nina’s hand and is abruptly refused–for Nina is only 34 years of age, and Buddhadev is six years older than Nina’s dad. When Nina and Buddhadev insist on getting married, her Gandhian dad decides to undertake a fast unto death (satyagraha). The question remains, will Buddhadev and Nina continue their relationship, and how will this satyagraha impact Mr. Verma’s life?
