    I'm in-between with this movie. While I liked the story and there were some scenes that were brilliant, there lacked a certain something in this film. That being said, I certainly think it's recommendable to rom-com lovers.

    a charmingly funny and enjoyable comedy that is entirley irresistable, entertaining, and has lots of fun. A+

    The movie was directed by Australian Peter Weir, who tailored the role of Georges Faure to French actor Gerard Depardieu, his first English-language film, with ex-model Andie MacDowell who began building a film career for herself from the mid-1980's on. MacDowell plays the New York biologist Bronte Parrish who is determined to rent a delightful, old apartment that is reserved for married couples only. Depardieu, whose portrayal of French composer Faure, applies for a Green Card to allow him to work in the United States. To put it bluntly, he needs to marry an American to get legal residency. Hence, an arranged wedding between Bronte and Georges swiftly ensue, although they still want to go their separate ways. The couple come to the attention of the Immigration Authorities, however, and so now feel obliged to live together, which cause all sorts of complications. To prepare for inquisitorial interviews, the two of them concoct a shared past, tell each other about their childhood and place holiday photos around the apartment. They fall in love to each other, although he is eventually deported. A happy ending is merely postponed but not cancelled.

    Ah Gerard Depardieu. This guy is a legend. Great in Comedy and Dramas. Too Bad he retired.
