A 1990 romatic comedy
starring Gérard Depardieu
and Andie McDowell
as a couple of strangers who arrange a marriage of convenience
. George Faure
is a frenchman in America, and needs a green card, and Bronte Parrish
needs to be married to obtain the dream flat
she has just found. They then move in together to convince the INS
that they have married for love. Rather predictably of course, they fall in love, and hijinks ensue
Gérard is as good as always in this film, and it probably contributed to his growth in popularity outside Europe in the early 90s. Andie is quite tolerable, which is good for her, as she is an abysmal actress IMHO. A couple of other notable cast names are Bebe Neuwirth, famous for playing the wife/ex-wife of Dr Frasier Crane in Cheers and Frasier, and Ethan Phillips, Neelix from Star Trek: Voyager.
Tagline: The story of two people who got married, met, and then fell in love.
