Storyline

A young and pretty Polish woman arrives in London to marry a British doctor she met in Poland, only to find that he's changed his mind. Not wanting to return to Poland and in need of a green card, she proposes marriage to the astonished patient who happens to be in the doctors office at the time. Since he desperately needs cash to pay a mob debt, he later accepts. Written by Bill Spandagos <bill@smart.net>

Agreeable comedy/drama
2 September 2004 | by (Wellington) – See all my reviews

Although this film's budget befitted the impoverished circumstances of the main characters and the script is rather threadbare at times, the characterization is great. The basis is the mutual mistrust and attraction of the stunningly attractive Polish blonde, Alicja, and the English art student turned courier for a sleezy strip club operator/porno dealer - despite their different cultures both are educated and their needs are similar. The secondary characters add life also: Alicja's intended doctor fiance who reveals himself as a wimp, her Newcastle landlady who is businesslike but offbeat, the book publisher whose lustful interest in her is a little too obvious. We are reminded of Gary Kemp's musical renown in the scene with the one-man-band busker and his harmonica, and the scene where Alicja begins her strip in the club has a cool blues guitar soundtrack. 7/10.
