Critic Reviews for Head in the Clouds
The story becomes a long slog because Duigan doesn't define his characters and because he's determined to touch too many of the familiar '30s European bases.
The passion barely simmers, let alone rages, which may vex some viewers and will certainly confound the tabloids.
There's plenty of eye candy -- gorgeous scenery, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous people -- to keep the viewer from minding (too much) the Olympic leaps of faith required to invest in the film's plot.
You might not think it would be easy to make a dull film about love, war and a bisexual threesome, but Head in the Clouds manages this task efficiently despite a couple of decent performances from Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend.
Audience Reviews for Head in the Clouds
Head in the Clouds is OK. What are you going to do when you meet your soulmate? Even the ending is believable, although I've seen the same ending in a few WW 2 movies.
In a city of glamour at a time of decadence they met. An aristocrat, a soldier of conscience, and an entertainer. Together they shared a deep passion.
Okay for a bit. After a while I fast forwarded to the end.
