Storyline

An American flyer who joined the RAF before his country was in the war is recovering from a leg injury in Jerusalem. Through an English friend he meets a quiet Jewish girl whose close-knit family originally came from Spain. The two are attracted to each other but she is convinced their diverse backgrounds mean it could never work; not only is he a gentile, his father is a protestant minister. So though they keep running into each other in the small community, they find themselves just as frequently parting again. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

sweet movie
15 May 2004 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This was a cute love story that kept me completely involved, even during the sub title part, which i generally do not enjoy. Being Jewish I could understand the conflict Sarah was going through between her family and love...and being in love with Tom Hanks I could completely see why she picked him :). I do not know how I never heard of this movie before, but I definitely enjoyed it. Only thing is, I wish we learnt more about the ending. What happened between Sarah and her family? Did Tom even make it through the war? I kinda wish they let us know...but I guess they let us use our imagination, and mine told me that it all went well! I would recommend this movie to anyone who is in the mood to see a nice, not too deep love story. Guys most likely should stay away!
