It's a green-card marriage romance. Deena, an American standup comic living in Paris, has an expired visa. So, she marries Nick Foulliet, a struggling musician with a different woman for every day of the week. First the immigration investigation, and then a series of financial disasters push Deena and Nick into spending time together, and they fall in love. But can their in-name-only marriage become real? Written by
Deena (Patsy Kensit) is an American working as a stand-up comedian in Paris. Since she wants to stay in the country, her only recourse is to participate in an arranged marriage with Nick (Stephane Freiss). Nick is a poor musician who needs Deena's cash to keep afloat. Naturally, the dislike each other at first glance. As fate will have it, however, Deena is kicked out of her apartment and must move in with Nick. Yet, Nick is a ladies man who has a different woman every night; having Deena as a roommate thwarts his romantic intentions. Can these two declare a truce or possibly learn to like each other?
This sweet story is similar to the film Green Card, with an European flavor. The two leads are attractive and delightful while the Paris setting provides an ambiance of intrigue. Although the stand-up comic routines of Kensit are markedly unfunny, the story itself has many humorous and touching moments. Fans of the romantic comedy genre will consider this film a fortunate find at the video store or library.
