A lonely doctor, who once occupied an unusual lakeside house, begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
A young married US military soldier, Paul, returns home after World War II and meets a girl, Victoria, along the way. Victoria is pregnant and terrified of returning home to her Mexican family where her strict over protective father will surely disapprove of her out of wedlock pregnancy. Wanting to help, Paul offers to pose as her husband to calm things over until such time he is free to leave again but as they spend time together, they start falling in love with each other. However, Paul is still married and they have to hold themselves back before fate would intervene and tragedy would ensue and they would finally be together.Written by
Of the actors who portray the Aragon family, which is said to be Mexican, not all are actually of the heritage. While Angélica Aragón (mother), Evangelina Elizondo (grandmother) and Anthony Quinn (grandfather) are/were all Mexican-born, Quinn was also 1/4 Irish and portrayed many different heritages throughout his career. Giancarlo Giannini (father), known for his ability to speak different dialects, is Italian. Aitana Sánchez-Gijón (daughter) is Italian-Spanish. And Chicago-born Freddie Rodríguez (son) is of Puerto Rican descent. See more »
As Paul is hitchhiking home south to San Francisco, a driver said he can take him as far as San Rafael. San Rafael is north of San Francisco. The car is also driving south (ocean to its right), which is correct. However, the coast is at least an hour out of his way to the west of Napa, and he would not have gone that way. See more »
I know most people put this movie down and call it "saccharine" but I happen to ADORE it and watch it every time it's on - usually ever weekend - and I never get tired of it. It's actually nice to see a man who is gentle and kind...who says that's not masculine? And Keanu is very easy on the eyes too!
Pure romance - the kind we rarely see and what we need more of! Less sex and violence!
