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

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.

A romance film for all ages
4 June 2005 | by rook01See all my reviews

Many women who have written reviews said Keanu Reaves was an ideal man. Most men would like to think they could live up to the quiet strength shown by Reaves portrayal of Paul Sutton. Of course a woman as stunningly beautiful as Aitana Sanchez-Gijon could certainly inspire such nobility.

They are many roles that Reaves is not suited for. I am not a fan of his Matrix acting and please keep him away from Shakespeare. However playing a humble straight forward guy with some nobility he can do. Essentially that is what he was doing in Speed, Something has gotta give and this role. He even did that playing an adult turned teenager in Young Again. I am not sure he is a great actor but he is perfect for this part.

Aitana Sanchez Gijon has a beautiful screen presence which has shocked me why the Hollywood hype machine has not tried to build her up like they did with Penelope Cruz. This film did nothing for her career over here. I would watch her over Jennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz and dozens of other actresses that Hollywood has hyped into stardom.

Giancarlo Giannini is great as the father. Although Italian, his portrayal of a Mexican with roots back to Spain was dead on. Living in Florida near Tampa, many Cubans In Tampa trace their ancestry back to Spain and exhibit the same type of pride he showed in the movie.

It was also Anthony Quinn's best role in years.

However the star of the show was the music and the photography. Except for perhaps the music and photography of Last of the Mohicans, I can not think of a film where the scenery and the music did so much for a film.
