strong/weak typing and pointers

Is it correct to say that strong/weak typing does not make a difference 
if one does not use any pointers (or adress-taking operator)?

More concretely, I am thinking particularly of Python vs C++.
So, are there any examples (without pointers, references, or adress-taking),
which would have a different result in Python and in C++?

I would appreciate all insights or pointers to literature.
