The argument and story that this movie presents I found it to be totally valid, there is no legal way to protect a same sex relationship in USA when one is not an American citizen. Not many movies have dared to deal with this issue and much less in a way like the Andie MacDowell and Gerard Depardieu Green Card comedy. This movie does not do it either and whatever good intentions the director had to tell the story, he got lost with bad acting, a terrible screenplay he wrote, awful dialogue and annoying camera moves and angles.

Yes I understand that is a very low budget movie, with a script written in 10 days and shot in 2 weeks and the lead actress losing 20 pounds during the shooting (??), but with all these limitations they should have done a better final product.

After watching this movie I have to say that lately lesbian interest movies have improved a lot and when you see a movie like this one you appreciate more the efforts that serious directors and filmmakers are doing to improve the genre.

Gee, this was extremely bad movie and the issue is very important to be presented is such a pitiful way.
