Drop-Dead Gorgeous Threesome in WWII Europe by talltale January 27, 2005 - 8:47 PM PST

A supreme guilty pleasure, HEAD IN THE CLOUDS is so much better than critics may have led you to believe that you just ought to add it immediately to your queue if: You know European history and have any feeling for what the French, British and Spanish were going through during WWII; think that Charlize Theron, Penelope Cruz and Stuart Townsend are among today's most beautiful (and not bad on the talent front) performers; love to look at great sets and luscious photography of notable European locations; and enjoy movies about "threesomes" that admit how much fun they might actually be! There are other good reasons, too, but these should do it. The script is wittier than expected, the performances up to snuff, and the character that Theron plays (very well, indeed) is as rich, rounded and puzzling as any human being who believes in carpe diem but also has a conscience. Director John Duigan has put all this together in romantic, colorful fashion. The movie may miss in terms of serious art, but it's damn good entertainment.
