Storyline

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 mahajanssen

Trivia

In 2018, Debra Messing alleged sexual harassment from the film's producers and director Alfonso Arau before and during filming. She claims the producers manipulated her in to signing a nudity waiver for her scene with Keanu Reeves, promising Messing that the document was merely to appease the ego of the director, and that her nudity would not be shown in the film, as it was to be rated PG-13. However, on the day of filming, a nudity requirement was made clear to her, with the producers claiming that the PG-13 restriction did not pertain to what could be shown in foreign markets. She further alleged intimidation and humiliation from director Alfonso Arau during the filming of this scene. See more »

An adult fairy tale, and one of my favorite movies!
26 November 2004 | by leniedSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie at least 20 times. It is an adult fairy tale, set back directly after the second world war (with flashbacks to the war itself from which Paul, a chocolate candy salesman had just returned.) He is an orphan, and he meets a woman who in 1945 has gone off to college, and has returned in disgrace, pregnant, by a professor. Paul (Reeves) agrees to pretend to be her husband for a few days, and then he will abandon her, leaving her and her child alone. The most romantic part of the film occurs when the temperature becomes very cold right before the harvest, and the grapes could be affected by frost. Everyone dons "wings" and fans the warm air from barrel fires around the grapevines to keep the grapes from being killed by the frost. It is one of the most beautiful scenes ever filmed, and one of the most imaginative one. They say you never see anything new in films now a days, well this one is new, and it has a happy ending.
