This is Blanchett's film. Her quiet, detailed work leaves you wanting more.
January 24, 2002
Not a great work but wields powerful weapons in its director and its star.
January 22, 2002
This 'woman-in-jeopardy' movie feels more like 'woman-in-apathy'.

Mostly disappointingly and surprisingly flat.
January 12, 2002
While "Charlotte Gray" can be an infuriating film at times... it does feature subplots that make it worthwhile.

January 11, 2002
The script doesn't give Blanchett nearly enough to do to sustain a rooting interest in her character.
January 11, 2002
Blanchett, who gets better with every performance, takes hold of this movie with a firm but subtle hand.

Gives us a woman's view of World War II: There's a taut sense of danger here, and a different kind of valor at work.

Charlotte is another fine portrait for Blanchett's growing gallery.

There is nothing gray about this heroine.
January 11, 2002
Blanchett is an extraordinary actress, and she does what she can to flesh out the material. But Charlotte is one of the least active underground operatives in movie history.
January 11, 2002
This is a movie that looks great, is well-acted, and tells a story that you can't believe for a moment.

It's that most unfortunate of commodities, a thing of muffled usualness, virtually generic.

The politics are confused and the atmosphere is a muddy mess, a haphazard mix of continental accents and inconsistent languages...

January 11, 2002
It stretches credulity, strains patience, and eventually, falls flat.
January 11, 2002
Resists depicting WWII in easy blacks and whites, and in doing so, challenges the national ideologies, nostalgia, and idealization that have become so commonplace in popular cultural imaginings of the 'great war.'
January 11, 2002
This is a frustratingly inert story.

One wishes that the muddled script ... had received the same attention as the costumes and cinematography.
