Fresh off her Oscar-winning turn in Monster, in which she cemented her acting credentials by fattening up and getting herself uglified to play serial killer Aileen Wournos, Charlize Theron dives back into tepid melodrama as Gilda Besse in this awful WWII flick. It defines vapid. Theron doesn't act, she just strikes all kinds of poses in the period costumes supplied by Mario Davignon. Writer-director John Duigan would like us to think he's interested in a spy caper that involves Gilda and two individuals who lust for her, they being Guy (Stuart Townsend) an idealistic Dubliner and Mia (Penelope Cruz) a nursing student and former stripper, both of whom leave Gilda in Paris as they go to fight with the Republican army in Spain. But first, Theron gets to do a topless bathtub scene with Cruz and Townsend, and sleeps with both of them. That makes it sound as if this movie has some real bite to it. It doesn't.
