Great WWII era love story with a twist. Mexi/Cali style.
on August 30, 2016
Even though this movie came out in '95 (I think it was), I still love to watch it. I don't know what it is that grips me. Maybe it's the honesty, or the intense sense of family loyalty. It's a great love story. It is so true to the WWII era; too many marriages made in haste that shouldn't have happened. Yet in this movie, he (Keanu) wants to belong to a family, something he never had. There is one scene when the two main characters eyes lock and you just melt with the heat of love in their eyes. It's a beautiful thing. Eleven years later, I do see some faults with the story line, and overdone characters. If you like love stories, and wine, and Mexican culture and family values, it hits the mark.
