What to know

critics consensus

Head in the Clouds aspires to soapy melodrama, but gets lost in its own lather, never mining romance from its central love affair or achieving authenticity in its period setting. Read critic reviews

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.

    I now know what the term "group therapy" means... this flick is strictly for grown folks....Historic but intriguing.
