Storyline

Immigration officers raid the kitchen of a Montreal restaurant. Illegal immigrant dishwashers flee, including Pablo Torres... Claire, a teacher, lives alone. Her lover, Milosh, is married, and their relationship is strained. Claire's sister, Annie, a lawyer, has a problem. The visa of her client Pablo is about to expire. Pablo is a political refugee who was tortured in his Latin American homeland. Would Claire marry him so he can remain in Canada? Claire reluctantly agrees. At least her mother is pleased! Before the modest civil ceremony can be concluded, Immigration arrives, but everyone escapes. Mum is thrilled to arrange a big church wedding and reception instead! Afterwards Claire and Pablo go their separate ways. But Immigration knows what's going on. The two are forced to live together... Written by David Badger

"Till Death us do part, or at least until Wednesday"
13 July 2001 | by (Red Earth, Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

Bujold plays Claire, a loveless, near 40 woman who agrees to marry Pablo, a poet who will be deported and imprisoned(or worse) unless he becomes a Canadian citizen. They marry but the immigration officials are after the truth and take them to court. The outcome is predictable but the French script is clever and the acting, especially by Bujold, is charming. A worthwhile film from Quebec television.
