Green CardBy a customer from n8 , 09 Feb 2011I had already seen this film but knew it was good and needed reminding.
but the DVD was faulty so I did not see all of it.
I like the earthy feel to this film but could not tolerate watching an eighties film again.
No, RED card!By BigMeUp (283 reviews) from Midlands, UK , 19 Mar 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideGérard Depardieu is a former Parisian street kid, who can now play piano like a concert pianist. (Ahem!)
Andie MacDowall is a beautiful, but tightly-knotted bottled-up, buttoned-down lady who's attracted to the poem-reciting, sensitive, happy-go-lucky Depardieu. (Ahem!)
MacDowall marries Depardieu because she wants a beautiful apartment (she's like that). Depardieu marries MacDowall because he wants a green card, which at least makes sense.
Depardieu meets Bebe Neuwirth, who is MacDowall's beautiful, carefree, open, honest friend. Neuwirth is much taken by Depardieu, but this attraction is not mutual. Depardieu, it seems, is far more interested in the cold, unresponsive, frigid MacDowall. (Ahem!)
Having spent a total of 60 hours together, Depardieu and MacDowall realise that they love each other. (Ahem!).
The film ends with MacDowall pledging to follow Depardieu back to France, but [a] we don't really believe it and [b] if she did, we know it couldn't last.
Distressed by too much eye-full of Depardieu's gigantic hooter, with my ears hurting from MacDowall's strange cadences and enunciations, nothing is gained by watching what is just a really silly film built around a ridiculous premise.
not badBy NatDanWelsh (6 reviews) from Market Rasen , 15 Aug 2009This was quite a pleasent film, heart warming and sweet. I hated the ending though, I would have changed the ending! But i suppose its not whatyou expect to happen. Good film
awful endingBy a customer from uk , 17 Jul 2009fairly bad script and an awful pairing of leads.
it wasn't too bad until 10 minutes from the end where it became completely over the top and unrealistic. i'd only give the first part 2-3 stars as it was, so overall something to avoid, even if you're bored!
Green for go?By NotMeg (23 reviews) from Penrith , 04 Mar 2009Entertaining, amusing and passed the evening.
