In Cold War Vienna, Milena (Russell), a young American woman in her twenties, is rushed to the emergency room after apparently overdosing. With her is Alex Linden (Garfunkel), an American psychiatrist who lives in the city as a teacher. Through myriad fragmented flashbacks, the narrative depicts the story of their romance, which ultimately amounts to an unhealthy sexual obsession on the part of Alex. Through these developments, Milena is revealed to suffer from depression while still being married to a much older man (Elliott), whom she occasionally crosses the border to see during the course of her affair with Alex. Though Linden initially enjoys her free-spirited ways, he grows tired of, and embittered at, her lifestyle, which includes impulsive promiscuity and heavy drinking. Through spying on Milena, Alex becomes emotionally strained, and eventually tries to control her – leading to horrifying results, due in large part to very bad timing. Throughout, at the hospital where medics fight to save Milena's life, an investigator (Keitel) comes to realise that there may be more to her case than a simple suicide attempt. He probes, and once the truth lies brutally clear, tries to corner Alex into a confession of the possible crimes involved with Milena's accident.

Jane Steiner (Greta Scacchi) is an actress on the verge of giving up on her unfulfilling career who is offered a small part in an American movie set in the 1950s about Cesare Pavese, in which Steve Elliot (Peter Coyote) is playing the lead. Steve is a charming American movie star who is passionate about the writer he is playing although his work unknown in America. He is married to Susan (Jamie Lee Curtis) who is at home in New York, but falls in love with his co-star, Jane on the set. Jane is playing the role of Gabriella, Pavese's love just prior to his suicide. After meeting Steve, Jane abandons her relationship with lover and friend (Vincent Lindon). The story is told through Jane's eyes, and explores the illusions, passions and dramas of the creation of cinema, as well as one woman's journey from actress to writer, mirroring Kurys' own.
