One day Blanchett may get a part that melts her virginal ice queen formality, but this isn't the film
| Original Score: C-
Mature material in this old-fashioned WWII movie.
| Original Score: 3/5
Does a pretty good job of capturing some of the least romantic aspects of World War II.
| Original Score: C+
Um filme emocionante até os minutos finais, quando se entrega lamentavelmente ao romance barato.
| Original Score: 4/5
An adaptation that is often confused as to whether it's a love story set in wartime, or a war story with a love angle.
| Original Score: 2/5
This one's kind of boring but pretty well made.
You get your money's worth with Charlotte Gray: Its two hours seem like ten.
| Original Score: 4/10
Leaps into an unconvincing situation and sees it with an unsure point of view
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Trivializes World War II's darker moments in service to its cheesy romantic triangle.
A surprisingly dull movie.
Although the director perfunctorily covers all of the standard bases, the movie has few compelling moments, and easy to stage episodes end up feeling needlessly false.
| Original Score: 2/4
Director Gillian Armstrong and writer Jeremy Brock adapt Sebastian Faulks' novel into an overdressed and under-motivated melodrama.
If you have a nostalgic side ... there is much to enjoy about filmmaker Gillian Armstrong's cozy, intimate direction here, which conjures up a very specific ambiance.
An old-fashioned romantic adventure film strongly acted, ably directed and written with stolid sobriety.
The pace is so lethargic and the focus so diffuse that it's hard to get a fix on Charlotte beyond needless glamorization.
Mounts a romantic drama of the World War II era in mostly glossy, shallow terms.
If this is melodrama, it's melodrama of a superior rank, and I salute it.
While Blanchett's presence is surely felt in virtually every scene of the movie, her acting isn't. We don't connect with her at all.
Charlotte is quiet, bland and, well, gray.
