From Amazon.co.uk

Keanu Reeves is completely wooden in this romantic misfire by Alfonso Arau (Like Water for Chocolate). Reeves plays a World War II vet who hits the road as a travelling salesman and agrees to help a desperate, pregnant woman (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon)--who is afraid to let her father (Giancarlo Giannini) see her condition--by pretending to be her husband. Most of the story takes place in the old man's vineyard, and Arau makes a life of swollen fruit, grape-stomping, sunlight and tan flesh that looks amazingly erotic. But there are plenty of sillier distractions, such as the sight of farm hands chasing insects with flapping gossamer wings attached to their arms. Reeves is terribly self-conscious, while stalwart Anthony Quinn is memorable as the damsel's benevolent grandfather. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

After returning home from the war, Sutton (Keanu Reeves) accepts that his wife has no interest in him or his plans for the future, and sets out in search of a new life on his own. He soon meets up with a vineyard owner's daughter (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón), but she finds out she is pregnant and fears for her life when it comes to telling her father. Sutton then agrees to help her by pretending to be her new husband, a decision which will change both of their lives forever.

This movie is just the thing for a good absorbing evening! The cast is superb and it's good to see the beautiful Aitana Sanchez Gijon as Victoria Aragon in one of her few English speaking roles. Anthony Quinn really steals the show as the best 'character'! A good story, great photography and music all serve to show what a great romantic movie the Zucker brothers can achieve in such contrast to their other gems of the comedy genre!

5.0 out of 5 stars very nice movie 24 Jun 2006
By Sam VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I love this movie, it is really great and atmospheric. Keano Reeves plays an excellent role of a soldier who meets a nice woman and this meeting changes his life into a better one. What makes the movie even nicer is the presence of the legend Antony Quinne. The movie is very nice, and touches your heart with the amazing scenes of natural beauty, and the beauty of family life and simplicity of love. Every one should see this movie, it is a masterpiece and recommended for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm Movie 14 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie was lovely to watch - an eye pleaser in< every way. Great stress reliever.
By the way, the butterfly wings were used traditionally to waft the heat from the burners toward the grapes on the vine to ward off any further damage from the unexpected overnight frost just before harvest....not to chase away insects like previous reviewer said. I feel it was meant to be erotic, not silly. Keanu Reeves does a stupendous performance and so does Alex.

3.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC ROMANCE MOVIE... 5 Nov 2002
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This is a romantic drama that is entertaining, despite Keanu Reeves' somewhat leaden performance and the overly contrived plot. Look to the late Anthony Quinn for a wonderful performance as the benevolent grandfather, who knows true love when he sees it. Look to the beautiful damsel in distress, affectingly played by the lovely Aitana Sanchez-Gijon, with whom Keanu Reeeves ultimately falls in love. Look also to the erotic, grape crushing dance and the idyllic cinematography. Overlook the ridiculous ending scene where one is almost embarrassed for Giancarlo Giannini and the rest of the cast. If you do all this, you will probably enjoy the film.
The movie plot is simple. World War II veteran returns home to the woman he had married just before he left to go to war. You get a sense of what is to come, when she is not at the dock to meet him, as he arrives after a four year sojourn. Puzzled, he goes home and finds her there, and you have to wonder what he ever saw in this dolt, notwithstanding her lovely figure. She seems totally uninterested in him as a person. She never even bothered to read the almost daily letters he sent her, which is why she never even knew he was coming home.
He goes off to his former job, that of a traveling chocolate salesman, even though it is clearly not something he wishes to do. While on his journey, he meets a beautiful woman named Victoria, who has a problem. You see, she is pregnant by a man who does not wish to commit himself, and she is on her way home to her close knit family in the idyllic Napa Valley. She is terrified of telling her very old fashioned father, played by Giancarlo Giannini, of her situation and is weeping copious buckets of tears over the expected confrontation. What does Keanu do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly romantic 20 Mar 2013

Watched this film at a friends house. Had to get it for myself. Laughed, cried, gasped, all emotions from start to finish. Clean, no foul language, sex or violence. Unusual nowadays

3.0 out of 5 stars its a walk to take 19 April 2006
Format:DVD
It's not one of Keanu's best performances and in terms of delivery and script it could have been a lot deeper. But it is an entertaining piece of work...sweetly entertaining.

Based during the turn of the century it's a typical boy meets girl, falls in love, conquers all obstacles in his way (or gets them conquered for him!) and is rewarded much more than he expected.

Don't expect profundity, but do expect to come to the end of the movie and leave with a stupid smile on your face and a warm feeling in your heart.

P.s, the scene with the wings? It's supposed to be erotic and it was a method used to disperse heat - appropriate to that time.

Beautiful, heart warming movie. A story of how strangers can fall in love. A story of family bonds that rarely exist today.
