Overview

Set against the chilling backdrop of Nazi-occupied Paris in 1944, The Last Train from
Paris tells the story of forbidden love between an artist turned French soldier and a
Russian ballerina.

While apprenticing for Henri Matisse, painting the scenery for a ballet at L'Académie Nationale de Musique-Théâtre de l'Opéra, Jean-Luc Beauchamp meets Natasha, who becomes his creative muse and lone inamorata, inspiring him to become the painter he dreams of being. But Jean-Luc isn't the only man who is enamored with Natasha, and when a Nazi officer forces his attentions on her, she must feign indifference to keep Jean-Luc alive. Driven by passion for his country, his art, and his lover, Jean-Luc fights for France's liberation, even as Natasha looses her freedom and desperately struggles to keep her own secrets hidden.

Loosely based on the real-life adventures of Joan Miró, who escaped France on the last train from Paris with his Constellation portfolio, The Last Train from Paris skillfully interweaves truth and fiction into an epic that will appeal to lovers of art and history and romantics everywhere.
