| Romantic Melodrama Ahead of Time
In New York, the rookie newsman Christopher "Chris" Tyler (James Stewart) dreams on becoming a famous journalist. When his girlfriend Cicely (Margaret Sullavan) spends a couple of days with him, they decide to get married and Cicely leaves college. Chris's best friend Tommy Abbott (Raymond Milland) is his best man and becomes a family's friend. Chris has his great chance when his editor Frank Carteret (Robert McWade) sends him to Rome assigned as a foreign correspondent. Cicely stays in New York with Tommy and does not tell to Chris that she is pregnant. When she delivers the baby Kit, Chris celebrates and loses a big scoop and his boss fires him. Chris falls in disgrace and the couple has economic difficulties; however Tommy lends money to Cicely and offers an opportunity on the stage as an actress. Cicely is hired and becomes successful and Chris is depressed with the situation. Cicely seeks out Frank Carteret and explains the situation, and he offers a job opportunity to Chris in Russia. He accepts the job but Cicely stays in New York with their son. Along the years, their marriage ends with the distance, but they are still in love with each other.

"Next Time We Love" is a romantic melodrama ahead of time with a mature story of career conflict with marriage, causing separation, reconciliation and infidelity of the two leads. This theme is impressive for a 1936 movie, where usually the woman is submissive and dependable of man's possessions. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Amemos Outra Vez" ("We Love Again")
