Alisya has come from Warsaw to England, after receiving a marriage proposal from a British doctor. However, when she meets the physician again, he tells her his mother is against the union and that's that. Wanting desperately to stay in England, Alisya makes a half hearted proposal to one of the doctor's male patients. He, Aidan, declines, of course, but he owes the mob some cash and he later agrees to accept her invitation for marriage, in name only. But, Alisya will have to fork over some cash, naturally, so he can pay the bad guys. Not having quite enough money, however, makes the mobsters angry and Aidan finds himself hiding out in Alisya's small apartment. Is it possible that these two will find they have something in common, post wedding ceremony? This is a pleasant little film for those romantic comedy fans everywhere. The Polish female star is beautiful and winning and the other actors quite acceptable, really. Although the film has a definite "Limey" feel, it is accessible to those outside the British empire. The costumes and production values are merely adequate but that will not matter, either. Most of those who seek out something new in the funny love story category will find this film fits the bill.
