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
The blue and silver-colored badge that Sergeant Sutton (Keanu Reeves) wears on the top of his rows of ribbons (they represent the medals and decorations he earned during the war), on his uniform jacket, is the Combat Infantryman Badge. The U.S. Army began to award this badge by an act of Congress in 1943 to infantry soldiers who had it can be documented had come under fire by the enemy. Awardees are authorized to wear the C.I.B., and granted a monthly stipend of ten dollars in addition to their other pay factors during World War II. Its design consists of a Kentucky rifle on a blue field. By wearing the C.I.B., the filmmakers communicate that Sergeant Sutton is indeed a combat veteran - thus, his nightmares of battle, and, presumably, his affliction of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

There is a scene of a country road with solid white lines painted along the edge. In the 1940's roads were not painted this way. See more »
This film in one word, "beautiful." Keanu Reeves and the rest of the cast make this film enjoyable. I am not a big fan of romance pictures, but this has to be one of the more enjoyable ones. The acting is superb and the story is excellent.
A young woman heading back home meets up with a chocolate salesman. She is pregnant (but not married) and cannot bare to face her father. Keanu's character hides his true identity to play the role as her husband.
This picture is worth seeing and I advise anyone to see it. Whether they are into romance films or not. People who bad-mouth this film are too dense to realize you don't need action and bloodshed to have a good movie.
