Storyline
HEAD IN THE CLOUDS is a sweeping romantic drama set in 1930's England, Paris, and Spain. Gilda Bessé shares her Paris apartment with an Irish schoolteacher, Guy Malyon, and Mia, a refugee from Spain. As the world drifts toward war, Gilda defiantly pursues her hedonistic lifestyle and her burgeoning career as a photographer. But Guy and Mia feel impelled to join the fight against fascism, and the three friends are separated – seemingly forever.

Sexy and stylish!

Rating: 9/10


5.5?! I cannot believe some of the reviews on this movie. I really
thought that "Head in the Clouds" was a great movie. It has accurate
history, remarkable acting, very cool costumes, and a interesting
story. Charlize and Stuart are in their second film together and bring
so much excitement to the screen. Penelope Cruz does great as the
supporting role as well. I would highly recommend this movie for a good
watch. Please, do not base this movie on the rating from IMDb. I'm
telling you right now, this and "Casino" are the ratings I'm really
disagreeing with. They deserve higher, especially "Head in the Clouds".
Give this movie a chance, you won't regret it.
