Ray (Tim Vahle) has just returned from college to run a Native-American ski lodge. A laid-back place where employees' children play in the lobby and the handyman has a habit of macking on guests, the lodge isn't exactly four-star travel guide material. So when Ray learns that a travel guide representative is coming to make an inspection, he makes an executive decision to make the lodge a professional place of business. In addition to keeping his father, who happens to be the hotel's former manager, out of his way, he also has to contend with his somewhat eccentric staff, which includes an emotional vegetarian chef (Graham Greene) who takes a certain pleasure in informing his diners of the names he has given the animals they're eating. Despite Ray's exhaustive preparations, something, of course, goes wrong: something that, in this case, turns out to be a case of mistaken identity: when Tina, a comely Mohawk woman, shows up at the lodge, Ray assumes her to be the representative, and sets about giving her the royal treatment while the actual representative (M. Emmet Walsh) is ignored and must contend with a hefty dose of hotel mismanagement. Christmas in the Clouds was an audience favorite at the 2002 Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Christmas in the Clouds
The path of true love may not be smooth but it is predictable in Christmas in the Clouds, a wisp of a movie set in a Utah ski resort run by a Native American tribe.
Kate Montgomery's agreeably schmaltzy rom-com tempers its near terminal folksiness with stereotype-tweaking irony.
While you may have seen the story before, the offbeat characters and the movie location make you feel like you're treading new ground.
While Vahle and Tosca are the most attractive people onscreen, they are the least interesting characters.
A spin on familiar material, it's aimed at those who like their movies on the warm side.
Audience Reviews for Christmas in the Clouds
I severely underestimated this movie. It's funny and has a healthy amount of sarcasm and pessimism. I liked it. I wish the real world was remotely close to this one. A fun movie to watch.
A really funny movie made by First Nations people about First Nations people. I really like the mouse.
a very cute ending to see the main character, played smartly by Sam Vlahos, end up with the Brit. The comedy was very far apart but overall, a cute movie. Much like Grumpy old men series.
