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 {J-26}

Trivia

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 »

Worth seeing
12 February 2006 | by AvouraSee all my reviews

I had not heard of this film before, but just happened to watch it on TV in the afternoon, at the suggestion of my girlfriend. She did not know it either, but it starred Tom Hanks, and she likes him as an actor, so we watched it. We were not disappointed.

The film was made in Israel, and I loved seeing some shots of Jerusalem (which I have visited twice), and the acting was great. The storyline was good and very interesting, even unusual.

The two leads, Tom Hanks (when he was quite young) and Cristina Marsillach (who I never heard of before) both were believable in their roles and made us believe that their characters were well suited.

If this ever comes out on DVD, go rent it or buy it.

If it is on TV, record it.

This is a film I liked very much.
