Snobbish Canadian Lawyer Turns Into Regular Guy
5 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a waste of time. The acting was awful and the plot was thin.

In Quebec, Canada a snobbish lawyer who dislikes his wife is beaten and left for dead on the waterfront. He is found by the man he had recently represented in Court and won an acquittal. But he sort of lost his memory after the beating and takes a job with the local tailor. While in the rural area of Quebec, he falls in love with "Rosalie" but cannot marry her because he sort of remembers that he is still married to the woman he dislikes.

I suggest that you watch the first 10 minutes of this movie and the last 5 minutes. That seems to be enough to know what happened without wasting all of your time.
