User Review

Beautiful, Wonderful, Romantic...but cynics, please stay away

Rating:

It always amazes how many opinions can come from the viewing of the same movie. But this movie should have as many admirers as possible.

OK, the ending is predictable. So is eating, sleeping, working and making love. Is that any reason not to watch a movie?

What makes CLOUDS wonderful is the ride. It is a beautifully acted ride: Keanu Reeves acting his guts out plus: international sensation Sanchez-Gijon, noted actress Aragon, veteran actress Elizondo, Giannini the legend and the irresistible Anthony Quinn, Beautifully directed: Alfonso Arau, Wonderful cinematography: Emmanuel Lubezki, the wonderful music of Maurice Jarre and the song by Cuban Guitar composer, pedagogue and legend Leo Brouwer.

What is bad about smiling during a movie? I found myself smiling and giggling during the grape stomping scene. Does it hurt when you laugh? I guess only if you are jaded, spoiled and bored with life.

There is love, mysticism and joy...This is a movie to savor and breath in and enjoy the wonderful..

Walk in the Clouds....
