Once We Were Strangers

Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1997
Running time:96 minutes
Cast:Vincenzo Amato, Jessica Whitney Gould, Anjalee Jeshpande, Ajay Naidu, Lynn Cohen
Director:Emanuele Crialese

Description: Set in New York's East Village, director Emanuele Crialese wrote this light romantic comedy about two couples, four strangers determined to make love and the American dream work, despite the odds. Ajay Naidu plays Apu, an Americanized native of India; more than 20 years after leaving his homeland he awaits his bride by arranged marriage. Devi Anjalee Deshpande has trouble adjusting to the new culture. Apu's acquaintance, Antonio Vincenzo Amato, is an illegal alien from Italy, who has his own tryst with the object of his desire -- a radio talkshow host Jessica Whitney Gould--but their match is ill-timed. The trials, errors and demands of looking for a love in the late '90s is studied to great comic effect. All of the characters, despite their foibles, are incredibly appealing, due in no small part to a fine unknown cast, script and direction.~ Denise Sullivan, All Movie Guide
