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

Sarah and Victoria's family are Sephardic (or Sephardi or Separdim) Jews who because of the diaspora, lived in North Africa, Spain and Portugal around 1,000 AD. They spoke a language called Ladino, which is an amalgam of Spanish, Hebrew and Aramaic. The etymology of "Sephardic" is from a country mentioned in the book of Obadiah in the Hebrew Bible, and is believed to be representing Spain. The Sepharic were exiled from Spain by the Alhambra Decree of 1492. See more »

I first saw this movie in 1986 when I was 28 years old. I'm a big fan of Tom Hanks, and at the time, this was really an off-beat role for him. I enjoyed this movie for a number of reasons. It was like the love stories of the 1940s. There is really no action at all in this film, just the central theme that "True Love Conquers All". This story takes place during World war II, and I disagree with some others here who find the relationship pure fantasy. In a time of war, when human life is so fragile, normal thought processes cease. Let's live for the moment becomes the central theme of things. For a soldier or for one who loves him/her, the only thing that is important is the now. Tom Hanks gives his typical outstanding performance. Spanish actress Cristina Marsillach is stunningly attractive. Being a romantic at heart, I like happy endings. Every Time We Say Good-Bye is a sentimental and moving love story.
