I had this movie on an old video tape, so ordered it so I could watch it again, since my vcr eats tapes. For some reason Hollywood likes to pair Jews with goyim, which is not the way of our people. I would have preferred more Hebrew and less Ladino, but it does take place in eretz Israel. And despite his leftist politics, Tom Hanks is always a good actor.

Brilliant actor, Tom Hanks. Here he is as a young man, and he's a good actor, but the script isn't all that great. When the ending comes, it feels like its still the middle of the movie.

A hidden treasure movie

"This is a quietly great movie. It did not hit the top charts after its premiere and soon went into oblivion. Only after Hank's success in the 90s, this film "resucitated" on TV. Every... needs concentration from viewers, and a basic understanding of sephardic history to appreciate its value. Mr. Hanks once said this is his most fondly remembered movie, believe or not. Hanks plays the role of an american fighter pilot enlisted with the RAF. After his plane was shot down in North Africa, he convalesces in Jerusalem. He meets a young sephardic jew (Cristina Marsillach) with whom he falls in love. Her family overall resists this romance. She is also caught with the dilemma: my family traditions or my love for somebody who is "different"?, and hesitates, but not for long. The film accurately reflects a part of the life of sephardic jews. The director is israeli (and sephardic I presume). It is also a true experience to hear Ladino, or Judeo-Spanish. As a Spanish speaker, I see it as a form of medieval Spanish preserved across time. This is unique. The only weakness I found was the audio. I highly recommend this movie."

"I couldn't agree more with the critiques that precede this. This is pretty much my favorite Tom Hanks movie, I caught it on late night HBO and I fell in love with this sweet understated tale of two people in love under some very difficult conditions. Tom Hanks'is an American volunteer with the RAF who is wounded and sent to a hospital in Israel, while he heals he meets a young Spanish Jew that he falls in love with, however her family is againist the union, with so much difference i.e war, foreign military, religious differences and culture, the chances seem very slim for them. The writing, directing is great, the music, romantic songs from world war two,is terrific, and the great underlying humor is some of Tom Hanks best work. I don't understand why this isn't on DVD and considered one of Hanks best movies. I loved this, and recommend it to anyone who is a Tom Hanks fan."
