October 14, 2004
[Duigan], like his heroine, is too in love with his own ideas to see a world crumbling around him.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
September 16, 2004
It's the kind of undemanding weepie, at once calculating and guileless, that could make your Saturday night.

This soapy saga is for adults only.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 17, 2004
The story is a vapid Casablanca-lite with all the erotic subtlety of a second-rate Joe Eszterhas...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 20, 2004
... a little too uneven.
October 7, 2004
It's all very haphazard and infuriating, because the movie unerringly focuses on the least interesting aspect of its complicated plot.

December 11, 2004
The film is emotionally distanced from its audience, too stoic and stuffy. You'd never guess a film with as much sex as this one could be so stodgy, but there you go.

November 2, 2004
If this film is any indication of how Hollywood is looking at history, then the turbulent events of WWII are mostly about whom you were dating.

October 22, 2004
The passion barely simmers, let alone rages, which may vex some viewers and will certainly confound the tabloids.

It's wonderfully terrible.

September 17, 2004
This old-fashioned melodrama tips its fateful hand too early and shatters suspense. Despite their off-screen romance, Theron and Townsend have zero on-screen chemistry.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
September 18, 2004
This laborious melodrama about a hedonistic free-spirit fails to sustain our interest.

September 18, 2004
Theron lends credence here to those who think that her performance in 'Monster' was a prosthesis-assisted one-note one shot, Academy award or no.
September 26, 2004
An historical romance cum love triangle that can't see the forest for the trees.
| Original Score: 2/4
September 30, 2004
Head in the Clouds wants us to use the word 'sprawling' to describe its epic nature. Please, even Red Dawn sprawled several months.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 18, 2004
Miscast leads and ersatz emotions leave the film's soundstagey period ambiance as its most comparable asset. A handsome misfire.

September 16, 2004
A World War II melodrama of epic silliness and supreme vapidity.
