Scott Marks 3:30 p.m., Dec. 24
Cultural mix-and-match. A beautiful expatriate Croat in New Zealand agrees to a mock marriage with a Chinese immigrant while carrying on an intimate relationship with an indigenous Maori. (Which leads to an intimate scene, just between you, her, and the toilet bowl, of a urine-stream home-pregnancy test.) The tyrannical Croatian patriarch -- the Russian Mafioso of The Saint, Rade Serbedzija, a handsome and imposing fellow -- agrees to none of this, and his violent objections are more tedious than terrifying. With Aleksandra Vujcic and Julian Arahanga; directed by Gregor Nicholas. 1997.
