"Every Time We Say Goodbye" is Tom Hanks' first dramatic role and Cristina Marsillach's only English language role. It is set in September-November 1942 in Jerusalem and vicinity. Hanks plays David, an American who joined the R.A.F. in Canada before Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Marsillach plays Sarah, an 18 year old girl, the youngest sibling of a large Serphardic Jewish family. Sarah is destined to marry within the Serphardic tradition. Within the doctrines of the Serphardic tradition, it would be unthinkable and heretical for Sarah to date David much less have a relationship with him. The eyes deliver to the heart that for which it yearns. Fences of tradition and doctrines are unable to stop love, for love knows no distance or barrier that can restrain it or kill it. "Every Time We Say Goodbye" fell through the cracks in the States when it opened in November 1986. This probably happened because it makes the viewer think--about interpersonal relationships. The story is about life, life that refuses to be turned into a routine directed by external authorities. If you want to watch a love story with a clever script, an inventive director (also the source of the story), a creative cinematographer, and superior actors, then you can be rewarded by catching up with this movie. Remember Rick and Ilsa at the end of "Casablanca"? Well, wait till you catch your bated breath near the end with Sarah and David in the scene at the outdoor cafe where they first met.
