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>

Goofs

The MG car is an anachronism. It is a TD, built in the early 1950's. It should be a TA from the 1930's. All TDs had solid wheels and TAs had the large wire wheels. See more »

Quotes

David: Well, my mother died long before that. My brother 'n' sister didn't have opinion. My, my father was disappointed. He's a pacifist. I was bound to disappoint my father. Joining up just got it over with nice and quick.

Period piece, love story.
18 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you like love stories - I usually don't care for them - you should enjoy this one. This is my all-time favorite movie. Marsillach is the most darling young woman I've ever seen. You might fall in love as I did.

David falls in love with a girl he meets in Isreal. She's a Jew and he's not, so her family does everything they can to keep them apart. It's a simple movie with no real plot. It doesn't need one. This may be the only time I can say a movie doesn't need a plot.

A really interesting side note is that the girl and her family speak Ladino. It is the Spanish spoken in Spain around 1492, when Ferdinand and Isabel expelled the Jews from Spain. That makes the film a bit of a time capsule, as the language remains unchanged. That made the film infinitely more interesting for me than it might have otherwise been.

Great period piece! Great love story!
