A Walk in the Clouds

Critics Consensus

A Walk in the Clouds aims for sweeping period romance, but quickly unravels thanks to a miscast leading man and a story that relies on cheap melodrama.

    A syrupy movie - about love and honour. Actually I didn't mind Keanu's acting, but the ending of the movie - with the fire and the vine is pure crap.

    This is a movie about a man Paul Sutton (Keanu Reeves) who meets Victoria, the daughter of a wealthy vineyard owner. Victoria is on her way home and is terrified of what her conservative father will do when he learns she is not married and pregnant. Paul impulsively offers to help her by posing as her husband for one night, unaware that doing so will change both of their lives forever. You really feel for the girl, and the predicament she's gotten into. While it's admirable of Paul to want to help her out, but you know what's going to happen!

    a good movie but the part where all the things were burning at the end didn't look that realistic , parts of the movie were interesting and others not so much

    In this atmospheric romantic drama, Keanu_Reeves plays Paul Sutton, who has just returned home from a stretch in the Army during World War II. Still reeling from the horrors of war, Paul wants to settle down and start a farm, but his wife Betty (Debra_Messing), whom he met and impulsively married shortly before shipping out, has arranged for him to take a job as a salesman peddling chocolates. While taking a sales trip to another town, he befriends a beautiful but distraught young woman, Victoria Aragon (Aitana Sanchez-Gijon). While away at college, Victoria met and fell in love with a young man and soon became pregnant; however, when her boyfriend discovered she was expecting, he abandoned her. She returns home full of shame and fearful of her father's reaction. But Paul gets an idea -- he'll pose as her husband and leave after a day or two, so when she's left alone with the child, the disgrace will be on him, not her. Victoria agrees, and Paul joins Victoria as she arrives at her family's estate in the California wine country. Most of the Aragon family take to Paul readily enough, especially Grandfather Don Pedro (Anthony_Quinn), but Victoria's father, Alberto (Giancarlo_Giannini), senses something amiss between the young couple. A Walk In The Clouds was the first American film from director Alfonso_Arau, who previously made the international hit Like_Water_For_Chocolate.
