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

A pleasant surprise
28 December 2000 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Caught this on TV tonight by accident and got hooked. A different twist on an arranged wedding with the 2 leads quite visibly falling in love after their arranged marriage to keep Pablo in Canada. The immigration officers were a little over written and over done and too heavy a plot contrivance but Bujold and Pablo are subtle in their dawning feelings for each other. The actress who played the mother was also wonderful, being brash and eager for her daughter to marry but also conveying the deep love she has for her as well. I gave it a 7 out of 10. A lovely unexpected ending.
