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

Paper Grain
6 August 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Paper Wedding presents us with an interesting premise. What if you fell for the chap that you were supposed to be married to just for pure convenience's sake? And then bogs it down with a pure chat-a-thon between the two leads, even though you probably know what will happen at the end, that by the end you're about ready to fall asleep. Geneviève Bujold and Manuel Aranguiz play the two central characters thrust into each other's lives when a visa marriage is under scrutiny. Because of this the immigrant has to live with the Canadian woman she marries so they can study each other before a magistrate rules on their fate. I suppose all the acting is fine, but there's hardly any action going on, which deadens the pace quite a lot. Even though this was a thankful 90 minutes, it does tend to bog down quite a lot. Finally, what's with the transfer of the film to DVD? The whole thing looks impossibly grainy.
