Green Card (1990)

Peter Weir directs Gérard Depardieu, Andie MacDowell and Bebe Neuwirth in this romantic comedy where a New Yorker marries a Frenchman in a sham marriage so he can gain citizenship… but then Immigration investigates and they are forced to live together.

The behind-the-camera craftsmanship is impeccable. So its a minor shame that MacDowell cannot act and Depardieu has no chemistry with her. That might sound like a major set-back to this type of genre movie but genuinely it is so finely made that you can almost just look past the cabbagy leads and get lost in the thrall of all the other pitch perfect bells and whistles.
