Every Time We Say Goodbye

Moshe Mizrahi (1986)

Our Score
After a string of comedy successes - Splash, Bachelor Party and Volunteers - Tom Hanks took his first crack at something weightier in this modest romantic drama. He plays a Second World War pilot stationed near Jerusalem who falls for a local Jewish girl (Cristina Marsillach), much to the consternation of her family. Hanks looks a little uncomfortable in the lead role and there are hardly any familiar faces in the supporting cast. However, director Moshe Mizrahi pulls most of the right emotional strings and the presence of Hanks makes it an intriguing curiosity.


An American pilot serving with the RAF is injured after his plane is shot down over North Africa. While recovering in a hospital in Jerusalem he falls for a Jewish girl, but their relationship is hampered by her family's strong traditional views and the fact that his father is a Protestant minister. Romantic drama, starring Tom Hanks, Cristina Marsillach and Benedict Taylor.
