It's a watched pot that never boils because there's no fire lit beneath it.

Duigan has the makings of a good yarn, but instead of trusting the story and his characters, he becomes fatally bogged down in trying to make statements.

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.

Soft-focus, softheaded mush.

This is never a great film. In scattered stretches, though, it's a very good one.

[Duigan], like his heroine, is too in love with his own ideas to see a world crumbling around him.

The story, setting and colorful cast should help make Head in the Clouds a winner, but the film undercuts itself repeatedly by being too heavy-handed.

October 8, 2004
Armed with a cliche-ridden script and a gaggle of unconvincing performers, the result comes off more like an Ernest Hemingway letter to the Penthouse Forum than a revival of Hollywood magic.
October 7, 2004
It's all very haphazard and infuriating, because the movie unerringly focuses on the least interesting aspect of its complicated plot.

The love story rates a B, while the drama is a C at best. Granted, the adventure part perks up to an A-minus, but you have to wade through two-thirds of the movie to get there.

October 5, 2004
An almost ludicrously old-fashioned epic that presents a string of melodramatic cliches with a flamboyant earnestness that accentuates...their absurdity.

October 2, 2004
Much like Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut, the on-screen chemistry between real-life lovers Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend disappoints.
October 1, 2004
There's a noticeable lack of life and energy for a movie starring a supposed free-spirit.

It sometimes appears to have been designed deliberately as an encyclopedia of clichés.

Catastrophically overdone.

This movie's history ... is sterile and the actors can't seem to transcend their 1930s wardrobe.

An ambitious, if uneven, tale of passionate lovers from 1933 to 1945.
