One day Blanchett may get a part that melts her virginal ice queen formality, but this isn't the film

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.

You get your money's worth with Charlotte Gray: Its two hours seem like ten.
| Original Score: 4/10
March 3, 2002
Leaps into an unconvincing situation and sees it with an unsure point of view

Stubbornly generic.

Salt Lake Tribune
February 8, 2002
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.

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.
Shawn Levy
Oregonian
January 25, 2002
An old-fashioned romantic adventure film strongly acted, ably directed and written with stolid sobriety.

Houston Chronicle
January 25, 2002
The pace is so lethargic and the focus so diffuse that it's hard to get a fix on Charlotte beyond needless glamorization.

Detroit News
January 25, 2002
Mounts a romantic drama of the World War II era in mostly glossy, shallow terms.
| Original Score: 2/4

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.
