PG-13 | | Drama, Romance, War
A Protestant World War II pilot and a Jewish girl fall in love in Jerusalem, even though their diverse backgrounds threaten to pull them apart.
Sarah and Victoria's family are Sephardic (or Sephardi or Separdim) Jews who because of the diaspora, lived in North Africa, Spain and Portugal around 1,000 AD. They spoke a language called Ladino, which is an amalgam of Spanish, Hebrew and Aramaic. The etymology of "Sephardic" is from a country mentioned in the book of Obadiah in the Hebrew Bible, and is believed to be representing Spain. The Sepharic were exiled from Spain by the Alhambra Decree of 1492.
What language was that you were speaking?
David: How did you and Victoria come to speak Spanish?
Sarah: It is what we speak at home.
David: Oh, your family came from Spain?
Sarah: About 400 years.
David: They must have some good memories.
