A Walk In The Clouds


(out of 5)

A soldier () returns home to California after World War II only to find his wife () uninterested and unmarried. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, he hits the road, bumping into a beautiful woman () on a bus who is stuck in a conundrum: she’s pregnant, and if she returns to her father without a husband, she knows she’ll be run out of town in a second.  Deciding that he has nothing better to do with his time, the soldier decides to pose as the happy groom, having no idea that soon enough his affections for the woman will become real. Lovingly photographed on the majestic vineyard estate that the family lives on and full of marvelous supporting characters (particularly a jovial ), this is a pretty standard romance that is sunk into the depths by Reeves’ reliably blockheaded performance. Sanchez Gijon fares somewhat better, but even she is more complex and interesting in the Spanish films she continues to make in her homeland.
